I don’t know about you but as a kid I loved to make up dance routines with my sister and friends, and perform them in front of family. Suffice to say, this great act of vulnerability didn’t make its way into adulthood… although it’s never too late to start. Did anyone read about the story of the dancing bus-stop woman?

The point of this story is that I remember all of these fun dancing memories when I put on this one pair of pants — appropriately named Dance Studio Pant. They’re my “on the way to and from” yoga pants, and I just LOVE them. They always make me feel great because I can’t help smiling when recalling those oft-forgotten moments; right now, I have a great visual of my godfather’s son breakdancing in his room to the tunes of Bobby Brown from his ghettoblaster. Ahhh, the good old days before iPods were the norm.
I love that clothes can make us feel so good simply by conjuring up these filed-away Polaroid-like snapshots of the mind. I confess — the whole thing has had me wondering, “what if?” … What if I had become a back-up dancer for Justin Timberlake, JLo, Madonna, or Kanye? Would that have paved my way to becoming a future judge on Dancing with the Stars? Ha!
PS. These are going to be the updated, and upgraded, version of the ubiquitous yoga pant. They’re so fun and cool!
