All of a sudden you have wondered off into a magical world in which you see yourself twirling around in many circles. Everything around you has froze and the materialistic and stressful life we live in can no longer be seen.
How do I seem to fall into this type of world?
Why am I twirling in many circles?
The question is how and why…?
To many dancing is a form of exercise, for others it means a night out with friends at a club. While for many its just a form of being silly and having fun.
I don’t remember the day I began dancing, that is how long this extraordinary hobby has been part of my life. The type of music does not matter, it can be hip hop, salsa, or country. The way I feel when I dance is magical either way, my mind goes off into a different world and for just a few seconds I forget what’s around me. If you don’t dance with passion and put all the energy you can into one simple move, then the magic does not appear.
Many people ask me how I learned to dance and why I am so good at it.
“It must be from all those quinceaneras you have been in,” this is the thought many of the people who have met me think when they see me dance for the first time.
There is no real answer as to how I learned, my philosophy is that I taught myself, which happens to be true. Like many other girls who love to dance I did not take dance classes growing up or become part of a club dance team. My priorities during middle and high school years were always set on grades and sports. Dancing has always been more of a favorite hobby that I enjoy doing on my spare time, something that makes me feel like I can conquer the world after I do it.
I remember standing in front of the TV when I was only a little kid, still learning how to properly read and write. Nothing would be playing, but I was able to see myself through the black TV screen. I would twirl around and dance doing all sorts of crazy moves while I watched myself.
As I grew up I started noticing all the different types of music that make dancing possible.
This time I would stand in front of a mirror and listen to the beat that made my feet, hands, and body move. As I closed my eyes and just danced I discovered this magical feeling you get when you dance. I felt like I was floating in the sky just dancing on the clouds, while everything around me had disappeared.
Time goes by and we grow, I don’t stand in front of many TV’s and mirrors now to watch myself dance, but I do still go into the same magical world I always go in when I do this hobby. I forget about the personal problems I might be having and it helps me relieve the stress that school and work brings upon me.
Dancing is an undiscovered magical world that many have yet to encounter..
