i finally did it...i bought a sword to dance with. i have taken a workshop, and i had my hubby make a sword for me out of wood to practice with, and it came out beautifully, more detailed and nicer than i asked for! (i was afraid to practice with it, i didn't want to scratch it up by dropping, it!) so i had a few dollars extra in my account, and decided to go ahead and buy one when i saw there was another workshop coming up that taught some techniques for sword. i got it on halloween, i was actually getting ready to walk out the door and it was delivered...if i had left a few minutes later, it would have been sitting on the front porch all halloween evening! how scary is THAT!?! anyway, i am sharing this video of one of my very favorite sword dancers. the sword she is dancing with is similar to mine, but these are bigger. and the "little" one i have is HEAVY! when i finish practicing with it, i have a serious dent in my head, and she has two of them! i have a tremendous admiration for her skills!
