|Move over Fred and Ginger, here come Joanie and Andy.
Joanie is proud to be one of the dancers for Plymouth Housing’s Seattle Dances fundraiser and competition this year.
Ten local dancers will be paired with professionals to shimmy, sashay and shake their assets to raise money to help shelter the chronically homeless.
Joanie is already a bit nervous, but mostly excited, “Participating in Seattle Dances is an unusual mix of pleasure and anxiety for me. On the one hand, I love to dance. But I usually dance in the kitchen or other places where no one can see me. So the idea of dancing in front of people is definitely outside of my comfort zone. But I know that when I step out onto the dance floor I will be swept up in the moment, the music and, most importantly, the motivation of the event.”
We can’t wait to share more of Joanie’s dance moves leading up to the competition on Saturday, March 12. In the meantime, check out the Seattle Dances website and vote for Joanie!
