    Also can I say how awesome this show sounds. I love Dancing with the Stars and wish the hubby would be more apt to watch it. The idea of seeing something like this live takes the cake.

  3. Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” is on our family dance mix!! But with 4 preschoolers in the house, being officially caught up on laundry (washed, folded, and put away) will make this momma dance!!

  4. I have a couple! “Single Ladies” by Beyoncé, “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore, and “Dark Horse” by Katy Perry always get me moving 😉

  6. Are you kidding me? These are my 3 favorite shows, so I’d love tickets. Not to mention I LOVE Bordino’s!

    Almost every song will make me want to dance–just depends on which method of dance based on the tempo of the song! I have lots to dance about these days: a new year, good health and family, a 4 year old that makes me smile and dances w/me often and a new baby on the way!

  7. Footloose- I have to dance every time I hear it.

    Shake It Off- is right there with it.

  22. ‘Fingers To The Bone’ by Brown Bird has had me grinning and doing a little shimmy lately. 🙂

  23. Madonna’s “Get Into the Groove”. It has always been a favorite of mine. It also reminds me of the movie “Deperately Seeking Susan”. I was 22 years old when that movie and song came out! Now I am reealing how old I am…. I have to dance with my Grandbabies!

  24. My youngest just turned five, and life is so much easier now. All five of us can go to the movies, out to eat, or do some other activity without a meltdown, multiple trips to the potty, or needing a nap. Life is good!!

  25. I love to put on some fun fast paced music when I am trying to get the kids in the mood to clean house with me!
