Party with a Beat

I think I’ve found a new reason to bring my girlfriends together.

You know what I’m going to say, right? I don’t even need to say it. But I will anyhow.



Since Mr. Darcy was away last week in New Jersey for a quick trip to visit his homeland before starting his new gig, I decided it was the perfect opportunity to throw an impromptu dance party. I mean I had wine and a Wii. What else did I need?

Have you tried Just Dance 2? Or, The Michael Jackson Experience? Because seriously, those two Nintendo games are just about the most fun I’ve had in a really long time. The Michael Jackson Experience is harder than Just Dance 2- that Michael had some really complicated and cool moves. You should have seen RCB & Booyah Girl bustin’ a move to “Dirty Diana” though. It was hot!

Terrell proclaimed she was going to dance her ass off- really, she said this to me right after we’d just finished sweating buckets in Zumba- and she wasn’t joking. She was the highest scorer every time she’d dance. I particularly enjoyed when she, Supple and I were all up dancing to “Proud Mary”.  It was just the opening of the song where the beat is pretty slow and steady. T says, “Is this how it is the entire song?” with a twinge of disappointment in her voice to which Supple and I replied in unison, “OH NO!” Because if you know that song, you know it gets kicked up 100 notches and you end up dancing in a maniacal frenzy.

Which we did while laughing.

It is the most fun. Sincerely. And a good work out!

You totally want to be invited to my next dance party, don’t you?

  1. Y’all, it was RIDICULOUS amounts of fun. My favorite part was when we were about to dance to Crazy in Love and Terrell asked what kind of moves were involved. I demonstrated my best Beyonce and then, seconds later, the video started and the dancer did EXACTLY what I had just done. And then as a group we did it and we were awesome. Sizzle hosts a hoppin’ party, as evidenced by the fact we would all collapse on the sofa, out of breath, laughing and smiling, not wanting to be anywhere else. Thank you again!

  2. I have Dance Dance Revolution on my PS3 and it’s a lot of fun. But everyone I talk to about it tell me that Just Dance is so much better. But without a Wii (and I’ve never used one yet, either), I’ll have to take everyone’s word for how good it is. It would be nice to ditch the dance pad setup every time I want to play.

  3. Oh heck yeah! I love my Wii but don’t use it as much as I should, I want a Zumba game and Just Dance, I’ve heard a lot of good things about it, that’d get me moving more. Which I need…..
