How I Slayed my Dance Dragons
After a decade of not dancing and trying to fill that void with some kind of, ANY kind of sense of purpose, I found myself depressed, spiritually numb, and ultimately out of alignment in life in general. I played with the idea of dancing again and then one day I decided to jump into a ballet class and hip hop class at a top notch New York dance studio. I was so anxious before class started that I cried! I did the best I could, but of course I felt COMPLETELY lost, especially in the fast pace hip hop class. Of course I was embarrassed by how I had performed and at the end of the classes I told the instructors that it was my first class in ten years only to be snubbed. I guess I was expecting some words of encouragement, but...NOPE!
I didn't take another class again for another 7 months or so until I saw that a new class had been added to my local gym. It was called Zumba! At that time Zumba was not the mega fitness giant that it is today. I gave it a try and it was pretty damn fun! The instructor was talented, engaging, warm, and full of energy! With no expectations about how I should look and no rigid standards or harsh criticisms doled out by the instructor or peers, I began to dance freer, more joyfully, and more passionately. And when you feel better while you're dancing, ultimately you look better while dancing. I didn't realize but I was becoming a standout student in the class. The instructor took notice and when she left for maternity leave, she approached me about taking over the class. READ MORE HERE
