I’ve always felt bad for not having taken dance lessons as a kid. I did some sports and a hell of a lot of Jewish studies.
I’ve always regretted not dancing because I love the feeling of flying in the air (there was that one year of gymnastics in 3rd grade and while I didn’t fly, I did do some mad headstands!).
But today, it crystallizes in me that not dancing as a kid also denied me an emotional outlet, just as much, if not more, than a physical one.
After being in a dance group in college and picking up on my experiences peers’ moves, I made up some for it.
And 15 years later, I’m still dancing for my mental health, just as much as for my physical fitness.
Mind, body, soul, y’all.
