What came 1st? The Shoes or The Dance?

Do the shoes make you dance or does the dance call for the shoes?
(chicken and the egg issue…)

Some of dievca’s dancing shoes:


It was a lovely Birthday Party!

Raquel Welch and Marcello Mastroianni during the filming of ” Shoot Loud, Louder… I Don’t Understand !” Shoot Loud, Louder… I Don’t Understand (Italian: Spara forte, più forte, non capisco)

Whee!

But it makes for a slower Sunday Morning.
dievca sends love and coffee.


Bachata at Bryant Park

Bachata is a style of dance that originated in the Dominican Republic. It is danced widely all over the world but not identically. The basics to the dance are three-step with a Cuban hip motion, followed by a tap including a hip movement on the 4th beat.

Throughout the Summer, in NYC, there is live music and dancing at various venues:
Lincoln Center, Bryant Park,  Meatpacking District , the High Line, etc.

dievca’s Home Opener for summer dancing was in Bryant Park: Bachata

Since dievca is on the “free” WordPress Plan, she had to convert her video to a gif and lost the sound.

The Bryant Park offering was free and had a lesson before the heavy dancing began. Yes, a lot of people with Latin roots came out to dance, but there was a strong showing from the Asian population and more. dievca opted for a glass of Rosé with a friend during the class and hit the dance floor afterward. Inexpensive fun!

On a side note: the public bathrooms at Bryant Park have been renovated and are insanely nice….so if you are caught out in NYC and need to go — make sure you are around NYC Main Public Library to use the “Taj Mahal” of public bathrooms.


Finding a Way (Presentation Outfit)

dievca is curvy.

That makes wearing certain styles a trick. And normally, dievca just avoids those styles.

For instance,
a 1960’s Go-Go mini-skirt shift dress:

It is a style dievca avoids….
until she saw Master looking at a museum exhibition of them with fondness.
Obviously, the fashion holds some great memories for Him.

So, now she has taken on the Go-Go Dress as a Presentation Outfit for Master.

dievca plans to buy one and get it altered to her curves as best as possible
or she might have a friend make her a dress with a vintage pattern.
Then it will be the quest for Go-Go Boots.
Poufy hair and cat eyes are not a problem.

Add a little groovy music and maybe dievca will swing her Master’s memories back here:

“Very often in the old fashion style of dancing, we may not feel particularly in a romantic mood and yet, very often, our partner would grab us and dance very close and hold us so closely – and I like this because, your know, we can completely keep it arms length and dance however we please, and ah – I really like that.”

Hopefully, Master will dance with His dievca at arms length
and then invite her to sit on His lap.
Perhaps His hands will wander up her mini-skirt.
We will see!

Something Serious…

Lampshade Dancing

Show me your sense of humor.
Be the fool for me.

Take delight in idiocy.
Save time to dance with me.

For I love you.
And you love me.
