Can.t Dance? You.re Right!

Guess what…if you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right! I believe that Thoughts Become Things. If we dwell on not being able to do something, that will happen. If we dwell on it as if it is in the process of happening, it will.

You can dance if you want to dance. Think, feel, live, love, taste, smell, hear the dance. Be the dance, be the dancer. How much are you willing to do differently to be able to dance? Now’s the time to take action.

We take the first step from where we are now, to wherever we are heading, and–when we string together each of the steps–we have a life that has been choreographed, one move at a time, tweaking as we go. Add the technique, style and other refinements and we are dancing!

Dare to dance, dare to reach in your soul and pull out the heart of a dancer and all a dancer can be: real… loving… pained… joyful… playful… sinful… sensual… elated,.. HUMAN… SPIRIT!!

I truly feel that I am a spiritual being having a physical experience. I was in physical pain shortly before I taught a private dance lesson today. The couple came to the lesson ready to go and I got swept up in the music, the movement and their enthusiasm for their dancing. At the end of the lesson I felt no pain. I had surrendered to something bigger than myself. I took the drug of dance and freed my soul!

“Dance is the only art of which we ourselves are the stuff of which it is made.”  ~Ted Shawn, Time, 25 July 1955
