Balter – this word very neatly sums up my dancing style to a tee. I mean, seriously, it’s not that I totally lack rhythm or can’t pick up choreography if given to me, it’s just that when I let loose and just do my thing, it’s a rather artless, somewhat clumsy mix of mad moves and random whimsy, oh and lots of giggles. Yeah, I’m quite the sight to behold and thankfully my friends are still willing to be seen in public with me (provided I don’t balter without warning, hehe).
Moving to music is as natural a thing as breathing, if we allow ourselves the freedom of it. Many are afraid of being thought a fool, or of being less then perfect or out of control. Small children get it, since they just bop, shake and spin to the sounds they hear and feel. Balter, dance, just go with the musical flow, even if only you can hear the tunes, for to do so is to be true to yourself and there is a certain grace and beauty in that, even if it may be hard for those unaware to see.
Have a great Wednesday and turn on some tunes and get down and balter with your awesomely bad self!
Namaste ~ Ella
