Dancing is a way one expresses themselves. It’s a a way to release tension, let yourself go and a great way to exercise. It’s not just for kids. Unfortunately, many adults stop dancing as they get older. They are intimidated by others who feel they need to “act their age”. There are so many different ways to enjoy dancing and I encourage you to try as many as you like. A few years ago I took up hoop dancing. I am sure my husband thought I was crazy. I even tried swinging poi. I love to dance with my horses using all sorts of things such as hoops, ribbons and scarves. This year I tried belly dancing. It turns out, I really like it. It’s a fantastic total body workout and helped build the muscles in my legs. Making those coins jingle was lots of fun! I enjoy line dancing because I don’t need a partner. I recently performed with some friends as the Village People to the song YMCA and some other friends to Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy at a party. Last week I started teaching dance-movement to kids again. I have decided that no matter what others think, I am going to dance my way through life!
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain. “Unknown”.
