Dancing Just for the Pleasure of It

When You Dance, Your Purpose Is Not to Get to a Certain Place on the Floor. It’s to Enjoy Each Step Along the Way – Wayne Dyer 

I really like this quote. I remember enjoying dance ever since I took ballet as a child. I loved rock and roll during my teen years and dancing to all kinds of crazy songs was great. Many years later my mom and I did improvisational dancing for exercise and our own pleasure. There were weekend evenings that seemed long if there was nothing on TV. So since both mom and I enjoyed popular Latvian songs that she preferred to other kinds of music we would bring out the old records. Then as we listened if a certain song struck one of us as enjoyable we would get up and dance to it as we would like in an improvisational kind of choreography as we went along. I have not danced in ages now and perhaps never will again but the memories of how enjoyable it was, remain.

  1. My mom was a great Ballroom dancer and she taught me all there is to know. Unfortunately, when my wife came into my life, we both decided to hang up our dancing shoes, mine was the type Fred Astaire had and hers were similar to Anna Pavlova’s. Yes, she knew nothing of Ballroom dancing and with my portly body, I sure as heck was not going to start taking ballet classes any time soon. (lol)
