Learn to Dance in a Year, Show it off on BART

dance in a year on bart

Karen learned how to dance in a year, starting with a very awkward first day. She practiced everywhere and guess where she decided to show off her final accomplishment? At the South San Francisco BART station, of course.

People who watch me dance today sometimes assume I’ve been dancing for many years. I made this video so you could see the awkward body that started just one year ago.

Here’s my secret: I practiced everywhere. At bus stops. In line at the grocery store. At work — Using the mouse with my right hand and practicing drills with my left hand. You don’t have to train hardcore for years to become a dancer. But you must be willing to practice and you better be hungry.

She used Lift.do to keep herself accountable, kept a dance journal, went to classes, and practiced every day. You can see details at Dance In a Year.

Her triumphant performance at the BART station is about a minute in, but I highly recommend watching her video the whole way through.
