Don’t Be So Focused On The Steps That You Forget To Dance!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE to dance. Anyone who spends five minutes with my family pretty much knows that my husband and I and our two kids are constantly dancing around to music as we drive, as we clean the house, as we throw impromptu dance parties pretty much any place, anytime.

I still remember coming home from work one day a few years ago when my daughter Ashley was still in High School to find her dancing on top of the kitchen counter when she was supposed to be doing her homework. But how could I get mad at her?! Instead I put my briefcase down and started dancing around with her and it was a memory we will both remember forever.

Life is just better when you have music playing that you can dance to. A happy song can change any mood from sad to happy within the first few bars of the song. Music can totally take you away from hyperfocusing on problems to dancing and enjoying yourself. Music and Dancing are powerful tools to help you be happy.

This week my family threw one of our dance parties with my awesome itunes playlist and my DJ spin table I bought (holla’)! Oh, and did I mention we have light bulbs with little strobe lights in them to turn the room into a full on dance club…cause yeah…gotta have those! We had parent and kids all joined in together to do a little hokey pokey, and the electric slide #dontjudge, and the ever famous limbo…then we threw in a little Snoop Dog (or is it Lion now?) and some Pitbull (gotta have Pitbull…seriously…love him) and everyone had a fantastic time. It’s all about letting your hair down. You can’t worry about how you look or what other people think of your dancing…its not about that…what is straight up sexy is just being confident enough to put yourself out there and MOVE!

My point is this – we have a weekend ahead and for those who read my blog last Monday you know that this was the week of being happy and letting go! So what better way to do that than having your own little dance party? You can do it with friends, you can do it at work, you can do it in your car, or you can do it all by yourself if you can’t find anyone to dance with you – it doesn’t really matter where or how…it just matters that you DANCE!

Have an amazing weekend everyone!

    I totally agree with this one. When a dancer becomes too focused on the techniques and steps, it would be impossible for him or her to feel the dance and express what the dance meant.
