Let’s be honest, we don’t always get a Holly Jolly Christmas. This Christmas season has been less than utopian for our family as some of them are really struggling at this time. Though with less zeal than normal, we are still attending many of our dance events. I sometimes feel these huge waves of guilt washing over me while dancing. Paranoid as I am, I wonder if people are critically judging me for doing this. Ballroom dancing is not just a part of the good times, it has now become part of the bad times, too. Dancing is a great stress reducer and it gives me back the focus that I need to go back and face reality head-on. It recharges me to waltz to What Child is This, tango to Little Drummer Boy, and, of course, swing to Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree. It is a new connection to the Christmas season that improves my state of mind, wherever it might be.
There are 4 more dancing days till Christmas!
See you on the Floor!
