…otherwise we are lost.”~Pina Bausch
Come on and DANCE. I.e.”….move the body, typically rhythmically and following a pattern or sequence of steps.” To music or not (Music, Music!!)
“Caper, cavort, frisk, frolic, skip, prance, gambol, jig, leap, jump, hop, bounce”–YES!
While we’re at it we can “sway, trip, twirl, whirl, pirouette, gyrate, bop, disco, rock, boogie.”
And definitely “shake a leg, hoof it, cut a rug, trip the light fantastic, get down, mosh” and
Even the words for dancing are energizing and fun.
If some body parts can’t move the way they used to or we would like them to? Then we can move them in a different way or choose a different part of the bod to shake it. Not a lot of space to move in? Take it outside or do a dance for a teeny tiny space :).
Because for pretty much whatever ails us, puzzles us, enthralls us, dance makes it better. Dance makes US better.
So, before we head out into another gusty snowstorm to shovel, let’s Work. It. OUT!
“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.”~Rumi
