Create something special . . .

(Mountain Views News, Sierra Madre published June 29, 2013)

Dance: the movement of the body in response to music… and so much more. A translation of sound to feeling, and to the present. A tangible expression of an intangible world. Personal, unique, precious. A mystical process calling the unknown to be known. Asking us to reveal who we are with utmost honesty. Through dance, we are invited to uncover, discover, and recover our true selves.

We hear the beat and react innately. The rhythm, the lyrics, the tone speak to our soul. Is it true? We can listen and learn things we didn’t know before. We find answers to questions we weren’t asking. Are we open to listening? Will we allow ourselves the freedom of unbridled movement? What is our body telling us about our spirit? Are we available? We are certainly longing to know about ourselves, though we may not always be aware that we are searching in the first place.

Everyone is invited, but not everyone is willing. To be fully alive requires vulnerability: “Do I even know how to dance? What if people laugh? What if I trip?” Such is the dare of the dance!

Your dance can’t be wrong. It was written for you. It was written in you. It’s not something you create — it is something you allow. It moves through you, speaking its passion. A meaning hidden until now. The dreams and desires of the spirit. The path that is right for you. These answers to unasked questions were waiting for the right time, for the right heart. The Real You revealing.

Say yes. Let it be so. You were born to dance.
