Video Pick of the Week

Ok! It took some doing, but I finally found my video pick of the week. I have known which videos I wanted to feature for awhile. The problem was finding them. I would have posted this sooner; but in my search for the video I ran across a site that plays FULL episodes of Fame. Soooo, naturally I had to watch one...well, ok...I watched 2 episodes.

Anyhow, this week, I am to highlighting the amazing Debbie Allen. This woman is an inspiration. Growing up, I loved the strength and determination that she seemed to represent. My favorite story would be when my parents were telling me that I could do ANYTHING I set my mind to. They used her (amongst a few others) as an example. They told me that Debbie Allen was told she would never make it as a dancer because her legs were too short. She could have made a decision to quit right then and there. But, she disregarded the standards that were set for dancers, she shook off what others thought and set her own standards while chasing down her dreams. Gotta LOVE that.

Unfortunately, the MAIN video that I wanted to share is not available to be embedded on this page. But, I can not help but share it with you anyway. Debbie is gorgeous in this video and she simply flows. Her dancing is inspiring-the mark of a true dancer. The link to this video is:

Be sure to check it out. In the meantime, here's a little taste of the classy, sassy Debbie Allen doing her thing. . .
