I have recently noticed how often the sentence, "I am a dancer," comes up in conversation.
Often it is a response to the "occupation" line on the form at a doctor's office.
Somehow what started as my friend wanting me to try something new with her has turned into who I am.
Dance is something I do. Dance is also a big part of my identity.
Dance has made me stronger in body and mind.
Dance has made me more sociable.
Dance has provided me an ever-evolving perspective and insight into people and the way the world works.
People have their own unique culture, language/way of speaking, dreams, hopes, desires. They also have fears, burdens, sadness and darkness.
The interesting thing is dance is universal. It is our human way to express those feelings and thoughts. We can tell a story without speaking the same verbal language.
Dance can bring us together.
And we certainly could all use that right now.
Have a great week!
Keep dancing forward!
