“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
Vogue Italia April 2015
What dances do you like?
I’m not much of a dancer myself. My husband is actually a pretty great salsa dancer (such a surprise to those who don’t know him!) He tried to get me to dance salsa in NY and Asia but I was just never good at dancing in time with the beat. I’m fine though doing a little freestyle or hip-hop and can still rock out to a good classic hip-hop song since I am of course a product of a NYC upbringing (side-note did anyone see Montell Jordan perform at the halftime during the NBA playoffs – he still sounds great!) I also used to love to do a slow little living room dance with my husband and now daughter in the living room.
This editorial depicting a beautiful series of dance moves by Karen Elson and Christopher Niquet reminds me of how much I miss dancing. I love letting go and letting a song totally surround me (sometimes I may even just remember the song and not even be listening to it). But I suppose I have just gotten caught up in the hustle and bustle of life post-baby. I don’t want to forget to rock out when I need to rock out. I’ll have to remind the husband to put on a good song and reinstate our living room dances.
Have a lovely week!
