The video of my effort in Star 102.1’s Dancing with the Knoxville Stars has received almost 4,600 views on YouTube over the past four and a half years. Today I asked my dance partner, Emily Norris, to guess how many of those views came from each of us. We’ve been watching the routine a lot lately as I attempt to re-learn it.
Why? That’s a good question. At a meeting of the FBI Knoxville Citizens Academy Alumni Association, I suggested Dance Tonight as a possible location for our annual holiday party. The planning committee liked the idea and started brainstorming activities. Before I realized what I was saying, I wondered if the professional dancers could work up routines to famous music from movies or TV shows about law enforcement, like the Theme from S.W.A.T. or Mission: Impossible. That’s when it occurred to me that Emily and I had danced to the theme from Mission: Impossible. The planning committee said it would be a perfect end to the evening and put it on the agenda. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
