i can’t dance

In ALL, LIFE OBSERVATIONS by Stephanie Klein11 Comments

Grind, sure, but dance, no. Anything requiring coordination is an automatic out. People have said I’m Elaine Benes in red. Prior to Sex and the City, I heard Sarah Jessica Parker. Something about my personality… well, I’m pretty sure it comes down to dancing. Sarah Jessica can dance, but in Miami Rhapsody she plays a character who always denies an offer toward the dance floor, “You know I can’t dance. People always think I’m throwing a fit.” Despite the lessons, I can’t do it either. Maybe I just haven’t found the right partner because honestly, any woman can dance so long as her partner is a strong leader.


  1. Maybe you can't dance but you sure sing great and have sooooo many other great qualities. And lastly, this is not a genetic disorder.

  2. Oh. My. God.
    That's just damn cute. I passed a little girl in Grand Central this morning… she was decked out in a pink tutu and the jealousy was nearly crippling.

  3. Steph, you're brave to post the picture. I have ordered my executors to burn all photographs more than six minutes old at the time of my demise. No prisoners!

  4. Much as I hate just being one of the crowd … that is soooooo cuuuuute.

  5. oh my god, i have a million pictures just like that one. 14 years of them in fact. so cute and hideous at the same time.

  6. That is funny. I was talking to a friend today and she said she did the Seinfelf / Elaine dance as well. I wasn't sure what she meant until she described the thumbs out dance Elaine does.
    Too funny. I had never really noticed it, and now it gets called to my attention twice in one day!

  7. Great pic. Those almond-shaped eyes and that smile — instantly recognizable as you, and I don't even know you. (How odd it is to "become acquainted with someone online through a blog, with minimal email exchange, communicating only indirectly).
