Deirdre’s Dance Den
Reflecting from my Dance Den today on what inspires me to dance, and what keeps me drilling and dancing. I love hearing stories from other dancers, it not only makes me smile, but it also inspires me to reflect. I think about how and why I want to keep getting that great ‘fix’, the one that Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance(TM) gives me! Now this is no ordinary fix – its one that should come with not a health warning BUT with a Great Health Alert! ‘My’ fix has gone Global and that is such a good thing! So what inspires me to keep it up? Not everyday can be high-energy, however, quoting the poet (Elizabeth Barrett-Browning): “Let me count the ways….. ”
Fun – why would you do it otherwise? Fitness – keep that temple tuned! Challenge – working the mind and body, especially learning new moves and combos and working them to seamless transitions. Being the best dancer you can be! Connection – there is nothing more healing and restorative than knowing your dance friends have your back in and out of class. It’s mobile! – you can travel and find classes, meet great like-minded people, take on-line classes, or just put on some music and dance!
Energy – you get good energy and give good energy. Laughter – embed those laugh lines! Shopping– class wear, performance wear, jewellery, the list goes on! Tattoos- (optional but addictive once started!). Please add to the list!
