BERRY WRITES is a weekly feature where I will share my thoughts on different topics culled from my 300 Writing Prompts journal. You can look forward to them every Tuesday, and you're very welcome to tell me your experiences and thoughts as well.
Today's entry asks - Do you prefer to dance with no one watching, with a group of friends, or with one special partner?
If anyone knows me, or follows me on Instagram or Snapchat, I think the answer is pretty clear...
WITH A GROUP OF FRIENDS!!! There's nothing like going to an event - party, wedding, whatever - with your best friends and breaking it down! My group of friends from college days and I used to make up dance routines, and when we went out, we would basically put on a performance for all to see.
What genre of music didn't we dance to?!?!? Woe betide anyone who was on the dance floor when ATL/Crunk music came on, because we were jumping and pushing everyone around just like the boys were doing. Or how we would get in formation the minute any Makossa song was played! OMG, Reggaeton music was another favorite of ours, and we could out dutty-wind anybody, while managing not to get whiplash. Old school Hip Hop had us doing the running man and butterfly like nobody's business.
We truly truly have so much fun when we dance together - a few of you saw snippets from my Thanksgiving Snapchat videos last week! While I do dance by myself (mainly to see if I still have my twerking moves), and with Cakes (who I should practice more twerking moves on), my favorite way to dance is with my friends :)
Mehn, good times!
How do you prefer to dance? With your boo, in front of your bedroom mirror, or wilding out with your friends like I did, and occasionally still do?
