Dance Like No One is Watching

It’s never a shock to me when I’m teaching a dance fitness class that many students have approached me after class to tell me how wonderful they felt dancing AGAIN! A vast majority of us (myself included) let life get in the way of the music in our soul. We temporarily forgot the steps.

Dance has always been my happy place. I put my kids in dance and performing arts because I wanted them to love it like me. I didn’t have a lot of opportunities because of finances as a child. What I did have was a grandmother who taught me the shuffle step for tap dance in the kitchen. What I did have was a mom who was an African and modern dancer who was well versed in the arts. My family danced at gatherings. My mother took her babies to any and all things free to give us exposure to the arts.

Whenever I got the chance, I danced for my life to earn scholarships or go on trips to dance camps. We didn’t have reliable transportation so some opportunities slipped through my fingers. Some of my dance and acting teachers would pick me up and take me to special events. I got to participate in dance competitions that blew my mind.
It kinda bites me now that I don’t have pictures of many of the awesome things I got to do as a child because I went by myself. When my family could come and cheer me on they did but I got used to soaking up the moment in solitude.

Dance has saved my life. It always comes back to dance. That’s how my spirit relates to this physical life: It’s a dance. I am thankful that as an instructor I get to see YOUR LIGHT come back on and shine brightly! I’m a mere vessel.

I shine. You shine. We shine together!
