DanceMind: Dear janie, Essence

Whether it is ballet, horticulture or debating, there is often a 'calling' described when this passion rises. (in your case ballet). It is a deep sense of connected with whatever you do. You have a purpose. It feels clear no matter what the cost. It fits like a glove. I gives you your breath.
You express yourself through movement and rhythm.

The experience of ballet is too fickle, in a way. the ups and downs, the trials and tribulations, the joy and achievement.

you carry this connected, this essence to class. Because it is who you are. Dancing gives you deep purpose and fulfillment.

A rose comes from a rose seed.

When you carry this 'spirit' into class than you are always on solid ground. A bad day is part of the experience. A good day is part of the experience. It is ballet.

This spirit brings you back for more Because it is who you are.

Like the climber I mentioned a few posts back. He must climb as You must dance.

I know a dancer who was born dancing. She 'never walked' when she was little. She was always twirling, leaping, spinning and bowing. Today she is a dancer. We all bear gifts.
