Josh & Susan leave their “Cat Tracks” in Uptown!

This is the first of a series of videos we’re calling Cat Tracks, because we plan to leave our prints all over town! In them we’ll be celebrating three things: 1) Memphis places and spaces, 2) our amazing students, and 2) the abundant variety of ballroom dance styles.

 

 

This gorgeous mural, located at Second and Mill (Uptown), was painted by artist Erin Miller Wray. Want to see more? Check her out on Instagram @erinmillerwray or just wander around town looking for her signature bright colors and uplifting messages.

 

 

Between his triathlon training, her community organizing, and a shared love of travel, it’s surprising that this busy couple can fit in anything else. Nevertheless, they’ve been dancing together for about a year now, and they’re really looking good!

 

The dance they’re doing is the Push-Pull (4-Count Swing), and it is extremely versatile. It can be done to almost any style of up-tempo music (old or new), and is perfect for parties, wedding receptions, and class reunions.

Help Me Make the Music of the Night

And what a night it was!

I love to dance, create, and even perform (although it still gives me butterflies). But add in a willing partner who’s up for anything and a great cause like The Baddour Center, and it’s pure heaven. This year’s Dancing For Our Stars raised over $58,000! Thank you to everyone who helped with their time, talent, donations, and good wishes.
