Ok, I gotta say: I had the most AMAZING belated birthday dance party on Saturday at Embassy Nightclub in Toronto. Thank you to every dance lover that supported!
Now here’s a somewhat personal note…
I was a little overwhelmed on Saturday. I got emotional for a bit, because of the tremendous support from my dance students. And, because of the simple fact that dance has brought so many people together. People from different backgrounds. Different jobs. Different religions, marital status, or whatever.
First of all, the T-Shirt I got as a gift from my dancers (Jimmy and crew- I still don’t know how many of you are behind this), I frickin’ LOVE. Purple tees rock! I’ll take a pic of it soon…
…But most importantly, I swear, it was the greatest feeling to look around the club, and see a group of over 30 people who didn’t know each other just 5,6,8 months ago, having the best time, DANCING together. I mean, sweaty, fun, gettin’ down and sexy dancing.
All without feeling awkward, or worrying what anyone else in the joint thought. The confidence dance brings to a person truly showed on Saturday. And you know what?
In fact, as I looked around, it looked like our group’s dance energy rubbed off on the ENTIRE club! I watched people not even in our group get inspired and let loose. Everyone just throwin’ down, having some drinks- in my case, many 😉 – and every person being welcomed in the circle as friends of dance.
THAT’S the positive energy we need more of in this world.
So again, I want to share my heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone that attended, and to everyone that continues to spread love, positivity, acceptance and friendship through dance. Bless you all, for being a shining example of our potential as humans.
Who knew a dance floor could change the world?
I learned a lot from you guys this weekend. Let’s do it again!
