I Dance When I Am Sad. What Do You Do?

I started dancing when I was a child and have been a part of a dance company for many years. Dancing for me is a form of expression. I am able to drown myself in movement and feel better at the end of the day. Dancing is one of my motivations and God is my energy. When I am sad or just need some uplifting, I either write or I just dance! Dance! I can still remember how it feels, to express myself and my thoughts through movement. I close my eyes and I hear the beat; I feel the beat. My body begins to loosen up as the rhythm takes over me. It arouses me, inspiring my every motion; my every step. My body begins to tell the story as my movements become intense and as I extend every part of me to emphasize the feeling. I can still remember how it feels to mold my body into shapes that depicts the purpose of the rhythm. I move my body ever so elegantly to illustrate struggle...strive...power...happiness. Still, the rhythm flows through me and I surrender because I no longer have control. Every turn and jump, every flex and extension, every flow of my arms, every arch of my back, every stretch of my legs, every twirl of my hips...hhhmmmm, I can still remember how it feels to express myself through dance!
