Day 46

I danced for many years growing up and I loved it so much. It was a creative outlet for me. It was an escape from my reality into another place. I felt so free when I used to dance. I practiced both ballet and creative dance for most of my childhood. Dance is a way of me expressing who I truly am. It is a practice I can come back to at anytime in my life and find immense joy. I danced through the first 26 or so weeks of my pregnancy with a lovely friend who started a dance school on the Northern Beaches.

Today I went to Sydney Dance Company and did an open Jazz class. It was so much fun. The teacher Ramon actually taught me 22 years ago when I went there for dance camp in primary school. He is small in size but larger than life. A talented dance teacher and guide. We let it rip to Britney Spears – ‘Stronger’ and while doing the routine I felt so free and so much joy for the first time in 6 weeks.


Thanks Hamish for guiding me towards things that bring me so much joy.
