I have lots of rhythm. Lots. More than most white people. Dancing came naturally to me.
As a kid I loved to dance, but never with anybody except maybe my mother.
Growing up, I was tall and shy and very self-conscious about my height (and everything else). I never once got asked or went to a dance or danced at all in public, except ballet class or recital.
Dancing with the door and Bandstand, I burned ’em up though.
Did you dance? With real people or the door? My door could really dance, but he was such a square….. ba-dum-shee.
Chris Montez is still around. I bet he looks the same. Just like we do.
