Dancing is one of the most freeing experiences
Because in order to enjoy it
You have to let go!
You have to let your body feel the rhythm of the music
You have to let yourself be free from how you 
usually move or walk or hold yourself
You have to take a breath and let your mind go
Then you can snap your fingers or jump around 
Or kick or side step or twirl to your hearts content
Sometimes your body doesn't want to respond
But take it slow 
Stretch out your hands
Wiggle your toes and your feet 
Let your body feel the beat 
Then that song can take you away

I was born in San Jose/Silicon Valley and raised in the Bay Area. I have been writing poetry since I was a child and recently started to share it. I read some poems at a Poetry meeting for the first time last year. I have co written, produced and directed children's theater in the East Bay. I have self published a guide to eco-friendly, second hand shopping and recycling "90% OFF Every Day! available on Amazon and Kindle. I have worked as an Actress, Make-up Artist for Film/TV and Face Painter, Costume Designer and run a small business selling vintage clothing (pop-ups).
