It all starts with the plie.

Dance has given so much to me over the years.
It taught me how to get strength and balance.
How to hold myself with grace and power at the same time.
How to take instruction and develop it with practice.
There is nothing quite like stretching out and realizing that your mind is clearer afterwards.
I haven't taken any dance class in a while, and my turnout isn't what it used to be.
Regardless, my slippers, pointe shoes, jazz shoes and character shoes will always have a place in my home, even if I never take class again.

"...praise Him with the dance...let everything that has breath and life praise the Lord!" Psalm 150
