Dancing In The Street


Sometimes Dan likes to put on his favorite gear and head out into our street with his iPod. This is not a man who is lost in his head. This is a performance. If no one is out playing, he will wander our neighborhood until he finds people outdoors to dance for. The reason the girls in the background don't seem phased is because they aren't. This is something Dan has always done and something we have always enjoyed watching.

His iPod contains a variety of music. He most exclusively listens to the High School Musical soundtrack (both films). He also frequents Elvis Presley, The Blues Brothers, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, The Bee Gees, the West Side Story soundtrack, Jay Z, Usher, Nelly, Cool and the Gang, Run DMC, The Temptations, The Supremes, Carole King, James Taylor, and his sister, Emily Drinker.

Dan and I recently spent some time searching You Tube for his favorite dance songs. You can find our favorites on right right side of this blog under "Let's Dance!". Fair warning, be prepared to dance. Dan, Emily, our mom, and I were dancing in my room to "Boogie Nights" only moments ago. It could happen to YOU.

Oh my, I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed your blog, Dan and Will!
My son just loves High School Musical, too...even his toothbrush plays their songs! He listens to everything at full volume. We hear a lot of Hannah Montana around here, too.
I'm hooked on your site and will be a frequent visitor, I've laughed and cried.
Thank you to Will and Emily for sharing Dan with us!

That video says so much about Dan's abundant sense of joy and confidence, and it also says volumes about the importance of a safe and accepting neighborhood. So many blessings in plain sight--thank you.
