Later, I grabbed a mocha, sat down on the window in my room, felt the cold breeze on my face and wondered, “Why do I dance?”
For me, I guess, dance is beyond money, fame, recognition and entertainment. It is a strict discipline and I have been living dance each and every day of my life.
Sometimes I start dancing shamelessly when I am in public, always trying to work my feet when I have to stand very long. I start stretching to the sides; you know it gets very awkward when I have to hold still for a long time. When I put on my headphones, there is a dance video going on in my head, and I am the lead dancer! I so wish it was socially acceptable to keep dancing all the time in the malls, streets and especially the metro.
It makes me happiest when I dance! When I watch someone else perform, the beauty and length in the movements speak so much that words can’t express it.
Dance is not just about routines and steps, it’s much more than that, it’s like a live person with whom I have fallen in love with, and who makes me feel alive! I find and lose myself at the same time while dancing! I feel unstoppable. I feel invincible. I feel incredible. I break free; it heals the pain, and makes me smile! It is an addiction, and I can’t have enough of it!
Dance is my way of life. It begins and ends with me.
To have the power to create something in this world is a gift that every artist is blessed with. To be able to live your dream each and every day and enjoy it, I am surely blessed that I can dance and
that is why I dance!
