Do you love to dance? I do! I also love watching dancing programs. Last night I sat up really late and watched the finale of "So you think you can dance." I have watched the whole season this year and found myself immersed in the skill and beauty of some amazing dancers. From the auditions where it was fun to watch people without talent try out, to the last few weeks, when all the dancers appeared to improve beyond recognition. I sat entranced every week.
It really made me think about the joy we get from dancing, music and singing. I love to turn up the music loud and dance with my children, watch my husband lift one of his little one's in his arms and waltz them around the room, or throw them about in a jive, making them giggle and laugh until they can't breathe. My Mom and Dad always danced and my Dad's knees in the jive had a life of their own.
Can you dance? I can! I can dance for the joy of being alive, dance for fun and dance just because the music calls me to my feet. I will never win a competition, never perform on a stage, but I will also never stop dancing. So today turn up your music loud and join in the dance.
