#100daysofdance

I believe there’s a little bit of creativity in all of us.

Innovation. Spark.

Call it what you will, but even for the logical thinkers out there, you can’t deny that we all have (anatomically-speaking) a right-sided, creatively-fueled part of our brain. And this is where magic happens.

Friday’s are going to be our right-brain day. What it means to create a life you can feel connected to…proud of. The big and the small of it. Today, we start small. With me.

100dayproject Yesterday I began dancing. #100daysofdancing in fact.

This shouldn’t be something abnormal. By all accounts I’m a dancer. I’ve trained as one, I feel like one, I identify as one. But you see, here’s the thing… being a dancer isn’t a straightforward process.

Like all art, it relies on creativity, like all physical endeavors it requires fitness, but unlike many careers the possibility of it earning a living is much more…slim. I’m not going to enter the debate in this post today, but it’s safe to say that we as independent artists have a bit of tough trot when it comes to being able to express ourselves.

This fact means that I’ve leaned in to a lot of areas that highlight my strengths and circumnavigate my dance life. I’m a massage therapist, a Pilates instructor and hopefully, in the longer run, a physiotherapist. I like movement (if that hasn’t been made face-smackingly obvious yet). I’m passionate about educating you about how your body works, and how to allow it to function as it’s most efficient, optimum level. This is the value I hope to add to your life.

I also value authenticity, so I’d be remiss to neglect the very premise I preach day in and day out. MOVE. CONNECT. CREATE. Find what lights you up and go with it.

Dancing lights me up.

When i stop moving i feel stagnant; not just physically, but psychologically and emotionally. I feel stunted, caged, confused, and overwhelmed. Getting into my body is what connects me to a deeper, more actualised version of myself.

All this to say that I’M GOING TO MOVE. One day at a time, 15 instagrammed-seconds a day. It’s not going to be perfect, but it’s going to be me.

If you want to follow me on my journey, add me on Instagram… I’ve got a handy little button in the top right hand corner… see it? Yep. That one.

One last thing, I want to turn this back to you.

Have you discovered your little creative spark? Is it something you’ve thought about before? Noticed in yourself? Leave a comment finishing this sentence: I feel lit up when I …

I can’t wait to hear your answers.

    I feel lit up when I’m training in front of an audience and I can see how they are transforming their lives! 🙂
