Just Dance by Kristen

Published by Xiaohui on

Webster’s dictionary defines dance as “to move your body in a way that goes with the rhythm and style of music that is being played”. However, I think it goes beyond that. Each person finds something different in dance. To me dance means many different things. It is more than just the rhythm and style of the music. It is the emotion behind it. Dance can be therapy-helping you express physically what you may not be able to express verbally. Whether that expression is of sadness, anger, angst, happiness or yes, even lust, each piece of music is an opportunity to let that one part of you express itself fully. You may find yourself head banging to some heavy metal/punk music, moving your hips to a Latin beat, reaching out for a lost love in a lyrical piece or even getting your “sexy on” to a song your pole teacher picks. Whatever it is, I challenge you: find a song/style of music and move. Pick something that speaks to you and OWN IT!! It doesn’t matter if you are the most uncoordinated person in the world or the most gifted dancer on the planet. Your bathroom mirror doesn’t judge (believe I do a lot of choreography there). Move and enjoy it! So that is my challenge to you my kittens. I can’t wait to hear about your creations or your reactions to what you find out about yourself. Love, dance and light darlings! – Kristen
