    “any problem in the world can be solved by dancing”

    -james brown

    dance = love.

    i was in dance shoes the moment i could stand on two feet. my ambitious mom enrolled me in a series of classes that had me pirouetting, step-ball-changing and flick kicking, to my dad’s dismay {his dream was of me as a tennis phenom} , for 12 years……

    peter and the wolf. singin’ in the rain. swan lake. cabaret. nutcracker. pink tights. slouchy leg warmers. black leotards. perfectly pinned up buns.

    this was my childhood.

    and in high school & college, when the dance i knew was losing its luster, i discovered and began my love affair with the world of hip hop.

    and then i graduated. got a job. joined the rat race. and stopped dancing.

    …and after a few years of living the grown-up life, i started missing my dance life. and when i spent my lazy time watching center stage, honey, step up 2 and SYTYCD, my heart ached like crazy.

    so i made one of my ’09 resolutions – do what you love.

    and i resumed my dance classes and signed up for a hip hop dance workshop this summer!

    so…no matter how zany the day, how many things dominate your “to do” list…..

    here’s to doing what you love.
