Growing up, I was a classically trained dancer. I stopped dancing when I decided that career wise it had very little up side - given the short career lifespan. But I've always continued to dance, just in my home, or on the dance floor. A few weekends ago a girlfriend invited me to an ecstatic dance workshop. I had never been, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Well, I really didn't like the slow, can't really dance tempo - so I started doing ballet warmups. It felt sooooooo nice. And this weekend, I put in the New York City Ballet's workout - which is a basic dance warmup. And that too felt sooooooo nice. And so right. My body just flowed and afterwards I felt amazingly good.
I think it's great to somehow let go of a passion, but rediscover it again. At just the right time.
Anyone else had that happen?
