Flashdance...What A Feeling, ( Performed / lyrics co-written by Irene Cara and Keith Forsey / music composed by Giorgio Moroder ), was the title song to the 1983 movie Flashdance, starring Jennifer Beals, about a young working class, female steel worker, who dreams about making her passion for dancing become a reality by auditioning to study at a prestigious New York Dance School. Irene Cara, who is not only a singer / actress, but an accomplished dancer herself wrote " What A Feeling " as a metaphor for a dancer, who is in control of her body when she dances, and therefore can be in control of her life at the same time. The song was released on April 15th 1983, and became Irene Cara's only #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, it stayed there for 6 weeks. She also won the 1983 Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Female Performance, and along with her co-writers was awarded an Academy, Oscar, and a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song. The record went Platinum in the U.S. It was a well kept secret that in fact Jennifer Beals used a body double in the dance sequence in the video ( professional dancer Marine Jahan ), and many say that the trend of wearing " leg warmers " in the 80's was attributed to Jennifer Beals' character in Flashdance. [size=10].. I chose this HIGH ENERGY, UPBEAT song as my CHEERLEADER challenge for Round 3, ( but I adapted the lyrics slightly to match the theme ), because I feel that there exists a very strong similarity between the drive, passion and dedication that both dancers ( singers / artists ), and athletes possess. They are willing to overcome great physical ( sore muscles, bleeding toes, exhaustion from dawn swim practices or hours of training ) and mental ( stage-fright, anxiety, stress ) hardships to reach their goals. It becomes more than just a love / want to dance or swim, but an overwhelming, all consuming NEED. Michael Phelps, an American competition swimmer and the most decorated Olympian of all time is a prime example of an athlete, who possesses these qualities. [size=10].. I am so proud to be the CHEERLEADER for the members of TEAM SLACOVIA who have been training here at BOB RUTH AQUATICS for the past couple of months to prepare for their big swim meet. Not only are they all dedicated athletes, but I have come to recognize their best qualities as teammates. [size=10].. KRAZIED - TEAM CAPTAIN [b]: The first thing I noticed about [b]Deb is her generosity, with her time, friendship, and computer technical expertise. ( before I joined SS I was such a computer novice that I didn't even know what a gif was ! Now, with Deb's patient guidance I have learned how to embed videos, add backgrounds, and even make slideshows ! ) She is a very calm, encouraging, and competent Team Captain and I am very grateful to have her as a friend on and outside SS. :) [size=10].. WAXXWOLF - SUB CAPTAIN : ANG is a hoot ! I love her wacky sense of humour :) We have a section in our team IC called Make Us Laugh, where Ang posted some JIBJABS of us all singing and dancing to " Jump " and " Walking On Sunshine ". They are hysterical !!! As our Sub-Captain she has been such a trooper ! ( getting her songs submitted on time despite computer difficulties ) We are very lucky to have her on our team :) [size=10].. BARBRX - TEAM MEMBER #3 : I really appreciate Barb's attention to detail and loooove her harmonies ! ( I sing in a competition Barbershop style / a cappella four part harmony chorus, so I am a harmonies addict :) ) She puts a lot of attention into her song selection, and is very receptive to feedback about her performance from her fellow teammates. I'm very happy that she's part of TEAM SLACOVIA ! [size=10].. JENNYG - TEAM MEMBER #2 : Some of you may or may not know that Jenny and I actually both live in Montreal, and that Jenny is a Francophone. I appreciate the time, energy, and dedication with which she studies her songs to not only perform them with great flare, but also with a perfectionism that you would not be able to tell that English is not her Mother Tongue. I am proud to be her teammate and hope to meet her in person some day :) [size=10].. CONCEIVE - BELIEVE - ACHIEVE
