My two-night performance as Hello Kitty doing Eartha Kitt's "Too Close for Comfort" was a truly gratifying experience. I reconnected with my dance training and fearlessness and really took my place among the other performers. Yes, I did not have the best make-up or stunning costumes or back-up dancers, but I did double turns, an amazingly slow attitude turn and pops and crackles with my kicks and strikes. All with a smile and joy that dance is supposed to be. If this is chemically inside me to exude, then I could be worse off.
