Want to see me embarrass myself? The 33rd Throwback Thursday is for you.
On a July 2011 trip to New York City I had lunch with Julia Kulakova, a renowned dancer who also teaches a class in gypsy dancing. Before our meal — a lengthy and lovely meal at the now-shuttered Josie’s Restaurant West — I took part in one of her dance classes. She’s a wonderful teacher, very patient with my awkward moves. I tried my best, but as the video embedded in the article reveals, I’m no Fred Astaire.
Julia, however, is an amazing dancer and has a fantastic life story. And she’s still dancing, check out her site for more details including her work on music videos and much more.
