One Week Until Halftime!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with North Shore Suburbs & Chicago Real Estate

DancersHave you ever performed as part of the halftime entertainment at a real, live professional basketball game before?  Me neither!  However, that's about to change.  Next Sunday, January 29th, I will be participating in the halftime festivities during the Dallas Mavericks vs. San Antonio Spurs game.  Doing what?  I will be joining my fellow Jazzercisers in performing a 3-minute routine on behalf of the Pink Ribbons Project:  Dancers in Motion Against Breast Cancer.  It promises to be a great game and a sell out crowd.  I could not be more excited – nor more terrified at the same time!!

The Pink Ribbons Project:  Dancers in Motion Against Breast Cancer, uses dance as a medium to promote breast cancer awareness across the country.  They raise money for the National Alliance of Breast Cancer Organizations (NABCO), in addition to raising money for breast cancer awareness education programs and free local mammograms for women.  Jazzercise's collaboration with the Pink Ribbons Project helps bring hope, support, and inspiration to women dealing with breast cancer -- in fact, a few of the performers are breast cancer survivors themselves.  Also, all Jazzercise dancers in the halftime show are required to collect pledges for donation to the Pink Ribbons Project.  It's a community effort -- and that's a win-win in my book!

So, after weeks of practice, it's almost showtime.  And, what a great experience it will be!  Making a difference with my fellow Jazzercisers and having the time of my life -- all while raising money for and bringing attention to such a worthy cause.  Wish me luck.

John:  Thanks for your support :)  I'm feeling a bit teary-eyed after reading your comment.  Yet, even more determined to do my part in some small way ... so perhaps one day soon we can eradicate this devastating disease!

Carie, that's exciting and for such a good cause.  Hope they allow us to see the halftime show, including your gorup, and then hope I can pick you out.  What routine are you guys doing to what song?

Judi:  Thanks!  It's a medley of 3 songs and I wish I could tell you the titles -- but I'm pretty square when it comes to new music :)  The routine is choreographed for this performance.  Sounds like you might be a Jazzerciser too?

Susan:  Thanks so much!  It should be great fun!

Jane:  Yes, thank you!  Do I still get to keep my remaining 12 minutes of fame for another time? :)
