A Different Kind of Dance Post
August 27, 2011 4 Comments
As many of you know, I’ve started a fairly new job at Joy of Motion Dance Center. I was so excited to finally incorporate my passion for dance into my profession, but also nervous that I would view anything related to dance as work. To an extent, I’ve found that to be true. I don’t take as many dance classes and I’ve only been to a few performances since I started in April. I’ve hardly been blogging. I guess my explanation for this would be that I’m looking for balance in my life. I was so used to doing something completely unrelated to dance at my previous jobs that taking a class or watching a performance was a breath of fresh air. Now, it’s just another day at the office.
This may sound like I’m complaining, but it’s quite the opposite. Now that I’m in the swing of things, I can’t imagine why I hadn’t pursued this dream sooner. I can’t imagine why I had settled for a job that paid more, but gave me so much less to look forward to. I don’t know why I was suddenly compelled to write this post (it’s 3am on a Friday night and honestly, I haven’t been drinking!), and I’m sure my friends will make fun of me for writing this, but just had to share. As my former boss Brita told me, “Love what you do and you’ll never have to work another day in your life.” Or maybe that’s a Confucius quote? Keep dancing and dreaming!
