35 years ago ‘flashdance’ was released
and it emerged again recently
in honor of international dance day
i loved this movie
had the shoes, the ripped up sweatshirt, the perm
though my dancing style
was a bit different
from this welder by day/dancer by night
and i didn’t live in a cool loft
or have an eccentric dog
or ride my bike to work
or look at all alike
but other than that
we were like sisters.
Take your passion and make it happen! #InternationalDanceDay
“let us read and let us dance –
two amusements that will never do any harm to the world. “

long after new years eve has passed
with their village nearly covered
in a frozen white blanket
the fairies leave behind signs
of a magnificent celebration.
“the fairies break their dances
and leave the printed lawn.”

first concert – dancing to fitz and the tantrums
“music is a way to dream together and go to another dimension.”
the maypole dance is in full swing.
“when you do dance, i wish you a wave o’ the sea that you might ever do nothing but that. “
a lovely evening spent
in a warm and friendly house
filled with friends and family and neighbors
of all ages
of all kinds
with voices and instruments
it was important for us,
to proudly represent our country
with our own
belly dance act.
it was truly
a night to remember.
“every performance is different. that’s the beauty of it.”

(seisiún refers to sit-in performances in a relaxed social setting, in which the entertainment is intermingled with the consumption of ale, stout, beer and conversation.)
i’m always hopeful.
i feel like I’m at the prom sitting against the wall
waiting for someone to ask me to dance.
