Ali Z and Brazil!

Hello People, Pups, Kitties:

I really have no idea why you think I want to give you any details about my Samba workshop in Sao Palo, its really none of your business at all.  Would you want to tell me all about a special vacation you might have had?  I doubt it.

We had wonderful music (turn up your sound and hear some Bossa Nova ) to dance to all day.  We danced slow, fast, faster and interpretive.  It was all more than wonderful.  You saw a photo of my instructor, Lucas
Felipe Marcos, we had a grand time dancing every single day .  Then in the evenings we would seek out food and drink and a secluded place to be together.  He decided after a short time he wished to come home with me, and he did, but we got as far as Iowa and he said it was much too cold for him and he would have to hitch a ride south.  Which he did.  I continued on with my friends and enjoyed coming home.  Do you know it is very much Jungle there?  My first family de-clawed me, can you imagine me in the jungle?  No, No, No!

Fortunately, my mother has a collection of old Brazilian music tapes, and I play them much of the day now that I am home.  I have also had a large mirror delivered to my upstairs quarters where I can see my skills in Samba improve each day. 



I am only sorry that I no longer have an exciting, skilled partner to dance with, but thats life, isn't it?  For those of you who may not have seen Lucas dancing, here is a photo of him.


Such an exciting dancer!  All interpretive, never the same!  This is what I am  working toward, but it is not so easy to dance like this.  You have to be in excellent physical condition, and I am also working on that.

So thats all for now, I wish I had some photos of Brazil, but it was all dance, dance, dance.

Meow, meow,
Ali Zophia

Peeess:  I meant to add this url for a You Tube lesson in a most elemental box step Samba. Its very pretty though and you might like to give it a try with the right music.

That Lucas guy was no good fur you Ali. I can't imagine you being with anyone who couldn't handle a little bit of cold.

In fact I saw that Lucas fella today. He's still in Iowa, sitting by an onramp to I-29 South, holding up a cardboard sign that says "Will samba for food."

This is farm country. Good luck Mr. Marcos. Good luck...

Luv,
Cloud

Hi Ali Z
I had a careful look at the video, but am totally confused about whether I should be using my front or back legs, or both? Help!
Cheers, H.

We will be happy to watch you Ali Z as you are so light on your paws.

Perhaps you could dance with Stella?
I thinks Pepe might have some hidden dancing talents. He has no teeth so with your no claws and his no teeth you'd make quite a pair!

Wow. Your dancing skills are the best I've ever seen. I'm definitely not that good.
