“When I was younger, I thought listening was just about learning the contents of someone’s mind. I’d always try to finish their thoughts, just to show them that I knew what they were thinking. As I got older, I learned to listen better. I realized that by trying to anticipate their mind, I was ignoring their heart.”

"It’s getting increasingly difficult to disconnect from the world. So everyone needs a drug— some way to disconnect from everything. For me, tango is that drug. When you dance tango, it’s like you are in a cloud for three minutes."

"I’ve been examining my values lately, and determining whether or not I like the feelings that result from those values.""What’s an example of one of your values?""I’m very competitive.""And what’s a feeling that results from being competitive?”"Jealousy.""How does competitiveness result in jealousy?""When you have a competitive mindset, you tend to view the world in terms of winners and losers. So you resent other people getting recognition, because you somehow believe that less recognition is available to you. I’m learning that this is a false mindset. There’s not a fixed amount of success and recognition in the world. So another person’s accomplishments don’t diminish the accomplishments available to you."

The Jitterbug deleted scene from The Wizard of Oz.

The Jitterbug number took five weeks and tens and thousands of dollars to prepare, rehearse and film, and it was cut from The Wizard of Oz after the first preview.


The Jitterbug itself was envisioned as an animated pink and blue mosquito like creature who under direct orders from the wicked witch stings the principal characters and sends them into a jivy swing dance in the haunted forest.

Watching this (and fearing broken ankles with each loop) I can’t helping thinking about that old quote Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels.

…how she doesn’t even get to put her foot on the last chair, but just trust that she’s going to be supported until she puts her foot down on the ground… wow.

Amazing choreography and dancers. 

This is smoove.
