Happy Valentine’s Day! I couldn’t resist sharing Cupid Shuffle with you. Do you like this song? Do you know how to do the dance?
I’ve been at a few wedding receptions and parties when Cupid Shuffle was played, and whippersnappers jumped up and joined in. I felt like a wallflower, too intimidated to learn a new dance in a crowd of people, so I would sit in my chair and keep the beat, but it’s time to change that.
Wallflowers, unite! Here’s a Cupid Shuffle tutorial (below). Learn it, practice it, and be ready to show off your new moves the next time you’re at a fun gathering.
There are a lot of Cupid Shuffle tutorials, but this one takes it a little slower than the others. Just my speed. It seems I need to learn new dance moves in slow motion. It’s not just my age because when I took karate 20 years ago, I did the same thing when I learned the forms, slow and easy.
How about you? Are new dance moves and other routines easy for you, or do you need to learn in baby steps, too? Pat yourself on the back for sticking to it if that’s the case.
If you already know the Cupid Shuffle and want to kick it up a notch or two, there are other tutorials on YouTube that teach more advanced moves. Here’s one that starts with the basic moves, then shows you some “flavor to add to it so you can be the best Cupid Shuffler out there”:
Okay, let’s dance. You’ll not only get a good cardio workout, but you’ll also exercise your brain by learning a new skill. Once you’ve learned it and it becomes easy or mechanical, time to learn another new skill in order to keep your brain young.
What’s your favorite exercise? Do you like to go to the gym? Do you like to dance? If so, what’s your favorite dance? Are you doing anything special for Valentine’s Day?
I’d love to hear from you! Thanks for stopping by. Wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day!
