Happy Dance Friday #81 - Happy Birthday, Maksim
I'm going to give the powers that be the benefit of the doubt and say my invitation must have gotten lost in the mail. It was probably stuck to yours, which is why neither one of us found out about Maksim Chmerkovskiy's birthday bash until now. Still, this is much better on the wallet, and we don't have to deal with weekend NYC traffic (unless you already are in NYC) or the what to wear dilemma. It's the spirit that matters, and this week, we'll celebrate the birthday (okay, his actual birthday was on the 17th, but the party is today, so I still claim timeliness.)boy.
We can travel back in time to see Maks compete in 2004 at the World Masters semi-final:
No need to decide if Maks should celebrate with friends or brandy...er, Friends or Brandy. Since he's the birthday boy, he can have both.
Some Argentine Tango:
An elegant Waltz:
And when he gets tired (or outruns crazed admirers), there's another one like him at home, with brother Val:
Happy birthday, Maksim, and here's to many, many more.
