Competitive ballroom dancing plus gratuitous sparkles!

LIVE FROM VIVIDCON, here's my Club Vivid premiere...of course I typed this post up ages ago so that I could be a total dork and post right after it ended! Thanks to virginie_m (no longer on LJ, but not forgotten) for her speedy beta of this vid several months back.

Movies used:
Dance With Me (1998)
Shall We Dansu? (1996 Japanese original)
Shall We Dance? (2004 American remake)
Strictly Ballroom (1992)

It's not necessary to be familiar with any of these movies to enjoy the vid, but I totally recommend both Strictly Ballroom and Shall We Dansu (the original, not the vastly inferior remake!) because they will make your heart sing with joy :)

Notes and lyrics under the cut, and an extended tech-centric commentary can be found here.

The idea for the vid came from the fact that I was a competitive ballroom dancer, once upon a time. I poured my heart and soul (and all my money and then some ;)) into that crazy, campy, amazing scene and it sustained me creatively in much the same way as vidding does now. I honestly don't know why it took me almost five years of vidding to come up with the idea! But here it is...sparkly and fun and certainly not complicated, but made with a great deal of affection for the topic.

Lyrics:
Oh come and dance with me, my baby
Let's dance 'til we go crazy
The night is young and so are we
Let's make love and dance the night away

What I really wanna do
Is just dance with you
And feel your body tight
Show ya how to do it right
I can show you every move
I know just what to do
Each step will feel so fine
One dance and you'll be mine

So baby when we hit the floor
You'll be asking for more
Let's make love and dance the night away

Oh come and dance with me, my baby
Let's dance 'til we go crazy
The night is young and so are we
Let's make love and dance the night away

Oh put your hand in mine
Promise I'll take my time
We'll dance from head to toe
I can dance fast or slow
Baby look into my eyes
Let the music hypnotize
Let our bodies synchronize
When we're dancing you'll be mine

So baby when we hit the floor
You'll be asking for more
Let's make love and dance the night away

Oh come and dance with me, my baby
Let's dance 'til we go crazy
The night is young and so are we
Let's make love and dance the night away

Oh when it comes to dancing
I know how to move
When it comes to passion
I know just what to do
I feel the music inside
I feel like I am alive
The tempo is right
Let's make love

Oh come and dance with me, my baby
Let's dance 'til we go crazy
The night is young and so are we
Let's make love and dance the night away

Oh come and dance
Let's dance
The night
Let's make love and dance the night away

Oh come and dance with me, my baby
Let's dance 'til we go crazy
The night is young and so are we
Let's make love and dance the night away

(repeat to end)


Pumpkin pies, Club Vivid was awesome and stuff! I flitted around the edges of VVC earlier today, not quite ready to start barging up to people and introducing myself but knowing I'd have to get over it eventually. And tonight I did indeed get over it (hello, gin!) and it was a great time with too many great vids to count.
