‘There are shortcuts to happiness and dancing is one of them.’
Being a dancer means not only hours spent in the dance hall, taking part in various dance contents and doing your best to win it. It’s also a joy, fun, pleasure and pure happiness.
My last observation only made me sure about that. I have experienced something incredible as a dancer, passionate and a teacher.
In the last days, I had a pleasure to do a dance workshop for students. It seemed like it would be a normal dance class, and maybe it was… except for one small (big) experience. When the hip hop class started, all of the people were a bit shy and they weren’t so confident in their moves. However…Combination of dance, physical activity and of course music caused a miracle. From minute to minute, amateur dancers warmed up and started to feel dance in their bodies. I could notice a shy smile on their faces, they became more and more cheerful, happier and they started to have lots of fun. That’s really an amazing feeling when I can see that others enjoy moves the same as me and they aren’t hiding with it. At the end of the class, I saw a pure happiness, sweat and quiet humming of Will Smith songs. Something wonderful and remarkable!
Of course, there is a little of teacher’s merit in this (not that I would praise myself). A much greater merit in it has this beautiful thing that we call a dance. The way to escape from a whole world for a while and the way to happiness.
Dancing feels good and here is a proof.
