I was a shy kid and an awkward teenager/tween who mostly buried her face in story books, wandered alone and cowered under the weight of inhibitions. Was? Still am. But I have learnt to identify the inhibitions that stop me weakly from doing something that I really want to do from the ones that I still do not have any control on. Like taking a picture with the Spider man in the street vs public speaking.
I never happily danced in my life till I was 22. That was when I started learning Salsa and Jive. Slowly I gained confidence to dance with people, understand music and grow into the carefree, free-spirited dancer that I am today.
People tell me I am a good dancer, I know they are complimenting my joy while dancing and not really my poor mastery over the techniques of dancing styles. The confidence that comes from achieving a dance-high, is like no other.
I AM GRATEFUL FOR …
The ability to dance like no tomorrow.
The ability to dance like no tomorrow, finding solace in music.
The ability to dance like no tomorrow, finding solace in music and connecting to strangers without uttering a word.
