Dear Dancers, Artistic Athletes and Dreamers!
Dance attracts the most extraordinary people (yeah, I'm talking about you). Why is that...? Well, actually I do have some thoughts on this topic - thought it might be fun to share them with you.
Dance class offers so many metaphors for life. In fact, the parallels are mind blowing. You may not realize this, but when you walk into a dance class, you are making a declaration to the universe about your attitude towards life and about how you see yourself. You are expressing your willingness to be vulnerable and to feel uncomfortable because you understand that THIS is the price of learning, of knowledge and of growth. It takes an extraordinary soul to brave this level of courage. Specifically, the courage to be really bad at something in order to become really good at it. And how about the courage to look foolish (although you never do) while learning? These are extraordinary human qualities! People that have these qualities live exciting, abundant and rewarding lives! And guess what? You are surrounded by this kind of human breed every time you step into class.
