Dance

It amazes me how some people are able to make their bodies move, 

And how they work countless hours in an empty studio to try and improve. 

There are so many styles of dance that people can choose from, and there is one for everyone,

And there is so much that someone can do, that the learning is never done.

There is Jazz, Tap, Ballet and Hip-Hop,

With pirouettes, leaps, and fouettes, that the dancing is never going to stop.

You can do it with a partner, a group or even by yourself,

And when you win a competition, there is another award that you can add to your shelf. 

At the end of the day, it is not about the awards, the technique or even being on stage and getting a thrill,

It is all about the joy that it brings you and how it makes you feel full.

It is an art form that brings the performer so much strength, power and force,

And it is never brought from the oustide, it is a feeling that always comes from an inside source.

It is something that is never going to stop growing and will always be an evolving art,

Because it is something that can not be taught and it comes straight from the heart.

It brings a moment of completition into your life when it feels like something is not there.

And you realize that it is the joy that comes from being free and feeling like you can fly through the air.
