I used to think that dancing equals losing control. What about you?

“When you are stressed or have a problem JUST.DANCE.IT.OUT!”

You don’t have to be part of the Grey & Yang fandom to

feel in every cell of your body

that this might actually make sense & work.

My story with dancing is like a messy on/off relationship

I always loved to dance #80&90kid!

I mean Lambada & Madonna

instantly made me smile & happy

I guess I felt the freedom of creating my own

silly moves & having good times

THEN something must have change.

I let others step into that world.

And don’t get me wrong

dancing with other humans

can be as healing as a deep meaningful conversation.

Flashback to lil Ness.

I had 1 (!) flamenco lesson

AND I gave up the second I walked out

because the other girls made fun of me.

Too chubby

Not enough rhythm feel.

There you go

The 2 most limiting expressions in the world.

Planted in my tiny child heart within 50’

Slowly growing into fucked up Bullshit Stories.

Never signed up for a dance class again

Because from that time on it became crystal clear to me

That no ballet as a kid equals no rhythm as an adult (BS)

That chubby kids don’t dance as cool as “normal” kids (WTF, right?)

All my life tough, I have had this thing for dancers (and music, of course)

And they have always been somehow part of my life.

Just like nice reminders of the universe that I should give it a try, again.

To me dancers are the mirror of all

the emotions lacking motion in my daily life

It’s like watching the big bang of my deepest fears

Not knowing whether I should try tango,salsa, hip-hop or krumping

Ultimately dancing is embodying life AND death

it’s feeling the pulsation of my passion

the drumbeat of my soul

it’s about being heard, felt & seen by MYSELF

it’s being IN my body & honouring it.

Dancing ME out, is one of the most vulnerable things I can do FOR myself

because dancing unveils it all

the shame around my body I thought was gone

those old wounds being ripped open …

for dancing may expose us.

“Dance is the hidden language of the soul.”
Martha Graham

I used to think that to dance was losing control

Right now it feels like daring to dance is trusting life

it’s surrendering to something

my body knows

my heart feels

my soul remembers

There is no restricted area to dance it out.

There is no such thing as a good or bad dancer.

My guess is, there are just people who are more

passionate about life than others.

Dancing opens up

Dancing is life (& life happens everywhere, right?)

It creates expansion

It creates the space I so much need to hold for myself

It’s creates this vivid void

where my voice unfolds without words

Dancing is the most vulnerable thing I can do for myself.

It never has been about the others.

For it’s part of healing my story

And daring to show up

in the most authentic way I am feeling.

“Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.”
Martha Graham
