You know what dance means to me…it’s an escape from myself my mind blocks my physical backlogs, while I dance I run deep into myself so much that I am moved to tears and no more myself!
I remember akon’s song-“Live like you don’t plan to wake up”, my version-“dance like you don’t plan to wake up”, but irony is when you ask me to dance in front of you I make an ass out of myself :), I will try hard to be serious and not keep it just as personal hobby (many failed attempts though)
I feel I was born to dance, I always foot tapped for songs danced silly around my family, irritated dad by dancing in front of TV(which I do even now) and even dreamed of becoming a choreographer (ppl I am serious) sad part was I just dreamed 😦 but alas never got chance to take any trainings or rather was not keen on taking it too I guess!, and off recently to test my beliefs I landed into a good dance class and to my horror saw that they restrict dance so much that one ends up doing dancing mechanically(many may not agree to me ) and passion part is neglected to fullest; I agree one needs perfection to dance but to me dance is more about unwinding not getting entangled in it so much so that you forget its essence! It should flow from every cell of your body and should make you crazy momentary and you should submerge in a feeling that whole universe is dancing with you! I am sure one who feels dance is close to heart can relate to me.
I think everyone has dance in them, that thought arised in me when I recently watched movie Step up and they express it the same way! They rightly
felt that everything has a rhythm eg- heart beat!! isnt it ?; I mean hear the birds chirping, clocks ticking, sound of breeze, waves! Everything dances or moves at its pace 🙂 and is it not lovely to know that world is a stage and all are not just actors but dancers too! :)(How cheerfully can we play our part after this realisation) There is a groove in our moves just observe to agree! Even cry of a baby is strangely in tune 🙂
To sum it up Dance is a way of breaking out of our shells, our masks, layers and swinging in oneness in love of anything or sometime feeling nothing! So let’s celebrate it, lets celebrate life 🙂 and try indulging in it 🙂 and for people who are disinterested and others too, my only appeal- let’s get rhythm and harmony in life by doing good deeds! See by doing so we are grooving with life and others lives too :)and performing well in world’s musical drama 🙂
