Keep Dancing on the Hard Days
I hope you are well and staying home as much as possible!
With the current restrictions due to the coronavirus, many places are closed, including dance and fitness centers!
Which means it is necessary to dance at home (more than usual!).
Last year, friends who refurbished their bathrooms gave me two 3’ x 3’ mirrors. I also have a 6’ x 6’ portable dance floor.
With no where to work this weekend, I finally had time to convert part of the garage into my own personal dance and fitness space!
With my husband’s assistance, we got the mirrors on the wall of the garage. I then added a shelf for a fan and a whiteboard to make notes on the patterns, skills, or routines I want to work on that day. I moved my DIY ballet bar out there and have a space for my tablet to watch practice videos. We added some hooks above the mirrors and made a way to lift the dance floor onto the wall when not in use. That way I can still park the car in the garage!
I now have a space to focus on practicing my dances, working on my fitness routines, and a place to put the stress out of my mind for a bit.
While these days are difficult, they are also an opportunity to reevaluate our lives and find where our real fulfillment exists.
For me, I can dance anywhere and anytime. I encourage you to do the same.
Dance on the good days, and especially on the hard days. Through dance, we are able to express what words cannot. We give our mind and body an outlet through which it can pour any emotion.
Stay well and keep dancing forward!
