November 25, 2013

She said “I haven’t danced in so long,
I may have forgotten how.”
I said:

We don’t dance for audiences.
We don’t dance for the DJ.
We don’t dance for wallflowers.
We don’t dance for judges.

We dance with each other.
We dance to release energy.
We dance to feel joy.
We dance to express our feelings.
We dance for ourselves.

Dance with me.
