As a child, one of the best discoveries I made was my love for dance. I used to stand in front of the television and just move to the tunes. I never saw it then, it was right there in front of me. I was feeling it, experiencing it & living it. Dance brought me freedom. I was myself. It was just me and my world. Nothing else mattered. I could lose myself in dance for hours and come back all pumped up and ready for life! 😀
After almost 3-4 years no dancing…. I discovered dance again through Creative Movement Therapy. Every class has taught me to listen to my body, be aware of every move, sense every feeling in every body part, let my body talk & most importantly to just let go.The more I moved, the deeper I discovered myself, the freer I became & more happiness I experienced.
Your movement is all about you, it is you & no one can take that away. 🙂
The release that movement gives, the soothe the music provides and the open space is a perfect floor to just surrender yourself to your body and let the rest take its course. Movement has brought magic into my life. Every time I need to break free, all I need to do is move to the perfect tune and ease myself into it. ❤
The music – the right music has been very crucial in letting me discover and breaking free. So move your body at every chance you get, experience those emotions, let your body flow and release it all. Experience the power of movement, experience magic! 😀
Well after 3 weeks of HIP HOP which ended quiet DISASTROUSLY!!! 😦 I moved on now to SALSA!!! 😀 😀 finally , what i’ve been waiting for. I did try salsa twice before and it was kinda easy. But when my master did it… the only thing I did was let my jaw drop! 😦 My master , Balaji anna. I was all excited when he started off. But i have no clue why i found even the basic step tough to catch on. I don’t know if i just didn’t get it or i was too cautious of how i was dancing this particular dance???!!!But when my master started his moves….. i was like OMFG!!!!! His grace , that flair , the way he did the steps , everything…. EVERYTHING,was sooooooooooooo PERFECT!!!. It was wonderful to see. All i could do was just stare. From his hands to his hips and to the leg everything was just AWESOME!!! 😀 I immediately got a complete complex of ” I CAN NEVER DANCE LIKE HIM!!!” and became very cautious in my every move which made only things worse!!! 😦 The only thing that was running in my mind was ” How can anna dance like this?? so flawless and effortlessly??” He was a natural!!! I could only feel myself shrinking next to him instead of pucking up the courage to be bold and dance as well as he does. But yes!!! I have decided… if im gonna be PERFECT in SALSA , it’s going to be the MASTER B’s WAY!!!!! 😀 😀 😀
Well i was kinda of mood off the whole day yesterday and it was time for my dance class. With the kind of MESS i was having in my mind , i prayed that i focus and dance well today as it was time for PERFECTION to take it’s place. I stood by the window , thinking random things. I did not notice my sir come in or tap his feet in order to get my attention. I only realised moment’s later that he was present in the room. I apologised sheepishly and the class began. He sensed something wrong in me but did not ask me until the end. My mind was not focused even when started off with the stretches. I was starting to worry that i would probably be screamed at any moment. But thankfully the moment we started to DANCE , things changed. My mind went clear, i was more happy and focused. It was strange but it happened. I wondered at THAT moment if it was the DANCE STUDIO that caused this change or DANCE ITSELF!!?? Whatever was the cause , being there was sure like being in HEAVEN!!! I was starting to wish the classes would be an hour longer!!! That’s how my dance and the studio make me feel.. ATTACHED , HAPPY AND HEAVEN!!!
