I love to dance.
Moving in time with the music. Letting go of your cares and worries. Feeling the music move over you and wash away your cares and worries. It is a time when movement is not restricted, is not bound by the chains that society has placed on our bodies. We can move our arms as far out as they can go, take leaps and bounds, be big or be small. The only limit to our movement is our imagination. And once our thoughts are no longer chained, our body is able to move freely.
I have danced to the rigid rules of competition. And I have danced freely to the rhythms of music when alone, with a group of people at a party, or with my children in the lounge. At all times, my soul has soared with the movement to music. I have always found dance a blessing as it not only energises my body, but also my spirit.
Do you enjoy the movement of dance?
