#TBT: 1/22/2007: My Flashdance Routine, By Kitty

[Living room rug, Kitty is wearing an off-the-shoulder pink sweatshirt. Irene Cara’s voice fills the room]

First when there’s nothing…[covers face with paw]
but a slow glowing dreeeam
That your fear seems to hide [look out from under paw]
deep inside…your mind [look at audience meaningfully]

All alone I have cried [trot to edge of rug like gymastics floor exercise]
silent tears full of pride [waves paws over head to ‘heavens’]
In a world made of steel, made of stone [pushes right paw out in a ‘stop right there! move]

[skips to center of rug with one flip] Well I hear the music,
close my eyes, feel the rhythm [cabbage patching]
Wrap around, take a hold of my heart

[Unbelievable fervor of Roger Rabbitting]

What a feline, seein’s believin’
I can have it all, now I’m dancin’ for my life
Take your passion, and make it happen
Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life!!!
