Mixed Dancing

And from separate seating, we go to mixed dancing, which we all know is the direct result of premarital sex. Or is it sex standing up? I always mess that joke up. Anyway, this time the "mixed" refers to different types of dancing, not commingling of the genders (though there is some of that, too). When I was last in Los Angeles, I participated in a short dance film shoot, directed and choreographed by the talented Amy "Catfox" Campion. It was really fun for me as a writer to pretend to be a real dancer for half a day. (I also got to wear a lot of eye makeup that took several tries to remove.)

The short is called "Pursuit" and features several types of dance, including breaking and salsa. I am only in the breaking scene. It was made for the site www.DancesMadeToOrder.com, where the full video is available for a small fee.

I can't post the full video but I can promise you that in it you see at least 20 seconds of yours truly. Here is the trailer where I appear ever so briefly in blinding red and orange.
