Without lights, wihout glamour I'm that kid obsessed with M.C. Hammer I stick to myself and emerse myself In rhythms and beats Beats so rhythmic they make your heart dance, your soul sway
I stand alone
I dance everyday.
Beaming Yellow Layers of makeup coat my anxious cheeks, Tutus glimmer under the incandescence. An eerie silence follows applause, Then darkness pours into the wings. I am forced to face my fate.
Your words dance across the page Drawing me in

I hate these ballet shoes Everyday marks another bruise And as I dance with the pain, my brain is in flames, going insane Working double time over what should be considered a war-crime

The twinkling night sky: Interlaced with beams of light, Depicts the cosmic cha-cha Of age-old heroes.
I love to dance Alone in a sundress in the rain I found peace in naming the clouds In surrendering to the little pleasures in life And in giving hugs that tell stories
As the lights fade on The world is so quiet As you hold your pose The nerves grow, you can’t deny it The first notes flutter Through the air sprinkled with excitement You move the music
She moves gracefully, drifting like a leaf in the wind. Her body twist and turns to a rhythm only she can hear. Her moves are not a series of steps, but seem as one complete movement.
Sitting silently in the hallway,
Dance is a passion, Though some say it’s not, Dance is a way, You can express your thoughts. Dance is a sport, Though some disagree, Dance is an art, And it’s definitely not easy.
This beautiful music - The key to my "Someday" That is what I told myself, And it was true This beautiful music got me here This beautiful music got me through A childhood of pain
Blue paint drips from her sneakers, dancing along to purple rain she covers the scratches the scrapes from her crown of thorns. senseless noise fills her head, his calling is heard as a whisper
I didn’t know at first. First sight, first touch, it wasn't tantalizing until last night.
Small movements in the fingertips... A slight raise of the chin... Delicate steps onto the stage... A glittering smile to greet her prince....
Bright lights flashing, extended lashes batting, one last breath and I rush on stage this is no longer me. captured my the music, lost in the movements, this is no longer me.

I sit in my classrooms alone and quiet, I have a lot to say but I just to hide it. Some say I'm shy, quiet, and nice, Others say I'm weird, loud, and I need advice. I say, they all need to think twice.
The bustle of people, yeah classes are starting again.
I'll be honest. I'm a terrible dancer.
Let me step in someone else's shoes to be Alice for the time I'll have all kinds of new friends and shrink smaller than a dime
One. Two. Three. Four. My heart was pumping adrenaline. My legs were shaking. My mind grew close to empty. The music started playing. I forgot everything. I just made up bizarre moves. I smiled like an idiot.
I prize my gift from the sun, the smooth ebony blanket that trails in my path. It bears the token of my progress, like a toll booth of past endowments, always full of unanswered prayer.
The wind kisses me on the cheek and sings of wondrous things,
Scared and silent, I was often unheard Misjudged, overlooked, ignored For years I struggled on, burning with passion and expression,
you love to call me thick that must be a slick way to tell me to lose weight . You tell me to put salad on my plate . I heard you World , to be honest . This pound cake is too good and it already on my plate .
Smile on my face 5, 6, 7, 8 Cheerleading. It's in my blood. 12 years of it. 12 entire years of my life. 12 years of pom poms, dancing, cheering on the crowd.
The butterflies flitter in my stomach,
Lingering at the studio door are the memories of you. At last I am able to let go of the pain and sorrow you felt too. No one knows of the journeys we took, too passionate to overlook.
All the world about me crumbles
I walk along a field of grey
I really enjoyed how bubbly she and goofy he lindy hopped on smooth wood without looking in the studio mirror. It wasn’t so lovely once you came not to ask me to dance, but to call me a wallflower
The music plays As our hearts sway Back and forth To the sound of Empty fingertips Our eyes sparkle To the tone of Guitar strings and Vanilla Twilight How does this time
Childish Attention whore Fat Ugly That's what they called me The names that still ring in my ears as clear as the blue ocean that wraps around your toes and covers your feet with momentary protection
Raining in the middle of the street We dance to a Rhythm
There was once a jazzy song When heard would make you dance along We swung and we swayed We danced a soiree Oh how we loved that old jazzy song
You told me you didn’t want to,that I could do it without you.Your lack of interest and your surety,rejected me into his hands of security.As our hands clasp,
Your words flow sweetly Drip like honey From your half-closed lips A smile lures me in Your hand outstretched A twist, a turn, a spin Encircled by your arms I lose myself in the music
Off we go, just us two inside the studio To free ourselves and simply dance, to inspire those who desire to advance
I know my value.I know my worthand some of you just aren't worth my time.
1) Blast music from my room at 3 am while sharing stories with a friend I've only recently met
I love the girl with the vampire bite
Eternally dancing in one place, She wears elegant draping and lace. Frozen on her tip toes While twirling in one pose With a ceramic smile on her face.
My name is Aubree, I love the wide open sea. Dream job in the Mob, Naw, I’m too lazy. I wana be a dancer. Type that fight cancer? Grammy died of it

Flirting is a dance. A delicate balance of movements and grace using body language and words. A lie within a lie within a lie. You know it's effecting you when you're hyper aware of your pulsing heart.
You are the green and I am the black That make up the northern lights. The light and the dark together; The most beautiful of the sky's sights.
To the black and white minstrel Capped in red Drumming a ballad of beat In a forest ballroom with ceilings of leaves Capped in red Autumn trees stand tall
Each step I take, Each spin I do, I'm seem to be a little more free. The bright lights, warm on my face, Spotlight me, as I leave my soul on stage.
Sway with my boulders and broad shoulders, swiftly as trees and as good as bees, you and me should be a team. Footsteps like rocks but attractive as tater tots. Whether it's the arch of my back,
We dance, dance endlessly in a gentle-swaying torrent,
The future lies beneath a dream, a dream everyone want to live, yet, we all pertain a different one, like the one to become a dancer, for the rest of your life be a dancer, making it your one in a life time opportunity to seize everything you hav
A nimble spirit dancing this wayAnd that way, through the bare tree limbs;Resting for now, this moment.The breeze stirs translucentCelestial void;Cradled by Night,Exquisite,GorgeousNight.
My mother of Resolution A mother of hope A listener of wisdom My detective of crime Understanding of all imperfections Loving, caring, compassionate
One job that can change a life.
Cool air comes through the vents in a hushed tone Tough purple knees hit the floor leaving 20 girls sore During break all that can be heard are groans With blisters infested on their feet from the wood floor
This weary chime,
Screaming lyrics till I’m hoarse, Till my throat bleeds, then I’ll have satisfaction, Music- I sway, dance, sing, I scream with it. Take each carefully planned note like a last sweet and sour breath.
On the sidelines
Notes fill the air Where there was a void previously is filled with a beat Beats that resounded with the heart Boom boom boom Ba-dum Ba-dum Ba-dum Each pulse sends energy into a limb
As I aged It faded fast Although I wished It would last One foot forward One foot back Now memories are Of the past Piano, Forte Fast, Slow What I did was stop Instead of go
Last night a DJ saved my life I was broken and nothing seemed to turn out right but he let the music play and all my pain started fading away My troubles turned to the bass line
when i hit the field the crowd starts to scream. I sit here thinking this could only be a dream. no way, i never thought i would see this day. It all started with my tryouts in may. All the blood sweat and tears through the years.
It comes quickly Like a wave kissing the shore with its salty taste Retreating slowly before it comes again It's a feeling, a vibration Like adrenaline The heart moving faster
The cadence beat sounds The floor stands still He takes rounds The sun comes up The sun goes down He moves without a frown The moon says hello The moon says goodbye
I can taste it in the air. Spicy, warm, and ready to melt in my mouth, It comes to me.
The release of my emotions, The movement of my soul, The language of my heart, Dance. There are no limitations, no expecations, but only beautiful improvisations. Let go, to feel
the ladies of the foam prepare for the dance their legs kicking higher as they stretch to the sky the ladies of the foam start the opening number slowly
I’ve found there are questions and then there are questions.
Flow in the wind like a flower in the Spring, Your delicate petals swirl in the midst. Touched by your warm smile, waiting all along just to hold you a while. Tulips grow in May showers,
A dancer is expected to be tall, long, and thin. Their balance should rival a cat, and their grace should make you stare in awe. When a shorter than average, larger than average
It burns. It stretches. It pulls at my everything. The song reverberates through my muscles. Even when I am still, I am moving, I am floating, I am melting into the music.
I'm sad. I'm angry. I'm lost. I'm scared. I'm happy and daring and waiting, prepared. I want to, I have to, I need to share
Freedom comes with each word that pours out of the speakers Every step I take and move I make Grace is wrapped around my arms and legs While my mind is at rest and my body performs.
When I was a child, I wanted to be a dancer. Twenty hours a week, ice packs and recitals. Dreaming of a stage with a full house and applause But what I was missing, was working towards a cause. Forward.
Que Arte! Bright colors fly Men and women sing Twirling and spinning Has always been my thing. It began when I was five I watched my mother prance And began to ponder deeply,
Her toes barely touched
Stretched into a pirouette Porcelain arms above her head Pristine balance and tight bunned hair A trickle of salt water dread The lace toe shoe grips the edge Atop the orange lip of God Sprawling below is dark abyss She could fall with just a prod
The Maiden danced gracefully Thousands of dimly lit lights Twinkling above her head The spot lightn her She dance an dances Trees wave with silent cheers As she dances by
