"Dancing is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of the arts, because it is no mere translation or abstraction from life; it is life itself."
British Physician, Writer, Psychologist
1859 - 1939
Dancing has never been my strong suit. I grew up in a church where dancing was considered a sin. I sinned in the seventh grade when I danced at a sock hop, but I have never felt comfortable dancing. I have no rhythm.
I have learned that dancing is an art that touches the soul. While I may never have rhythm, I can appreciate it in others. I took a movement class 5 years ago that used movement to explore your purpose in life. We created our life story through movement. Some day I would like to participate in a workshop that combines dance, painting, storytelling and writing. Who knows maybe I will create it myself.
