I love music, so you know I love dancing. I am not talking about being the next Michael Jackson or Mikhail Baryshnikov, I am speaking of feeling the music deep down and your body just moving on its own accord.
From young to old, I have been in many scenarios where people were swaying to the music. I remember I use to go salsa dancing at this club in Mexico, and the best dancers were this older married couple who outdanced us younger people. I believe it wasn’t just the music, it was the emotions that the music invoked that made them so good.
I don’t believe there is no such thing as good and bad dancers. So what if someone is off beat? Dancing is a way of expression, and people express themselves based on their personality and emotions. There was a commercial for a major airline in which a bridesmaid was at the wedding party “getting down.” Now, she was clearly in her own world, but I enjoyed that commercial every time it can on television.
Why? Because it didn’t matter to this young lady how off beat of the music she was, she was having herself a good time. And quite frankly, that is all that really mattered. She was telling the universe, “I’m having a good time, I am feeling good, and there is nothing you can do about it.”
So, the next time you want to feel good (or for no apparent reason at all), put on some music and dance.
