It is the beat our hearts are following, the beat which opens for us new and mysterious expanses combining music, soul and body. Charles Munch described it as an act that expresses the inexpressible. It rises for above what words can mean or the intelligence defines.
Uno… I have started and I couldn’t stop for a single moment. I was dancing everywhere in the kitchen, going for a walk, in the university… Wherever I was doing either organising events, working under different projects, meeting friends my heart has always played the same beat – claves beat. I have left my hometown and went to the different city where I even couldn’t sleep it was something inside me what was asking to be free. At that moment I thought that the dance can be the one what can help me to find the answer. I always felt people so deeply and I saw the eyes of my teacher they were shining with such a passion such love to dance that I even forgot why I came, he was dancing with the whole energy and it looks as every part of his body was dancing with him. He have touched us listen to the music, listen to the beat, the story of the moves and the most important dance with the soul. This very first lesson was the strongest image in my memory through all these four years. After one academic year I decide to go to chase my dreams in London. I was walking through all the London’s streets looking for a place to dance. This memory of the first lesson never let me down and after some time it became as a reminder which inspires me to dance, touched me always to follow my heart and the beat it plays.
Dos… In life, in nature – everywhere we can find the perfect couple I always have believed the same is with a dance. And it is true. The moment I have found my dancer I felt like it is the first time I am really dancing. It was a little place in London centre; I was coming to that place most of the Wednesdays. It was always someone who invites me for a dance, but I always felt like something is missing thought it might be that I just simply need to change place where I was coming to dance but now I know it is just because I have never dance with him before. It was the moment when I have learn to trust and to follow to forget everything and the same moment to be the one with the partner. Every dance is about two, it is how you express yourself.
Tres… I am not an exception, sometimes we come to the moment when we feel like struggling. It is not easy to go through that moment as you put so much into it and it looks like you can go forward but you can’t stop it as well. I stopped dancing only for a few weeks I decide to search for something new maybe new place or a new dance. I went to one place very close to the place I was living. At the door step I met one of my old friends he haven’t say even the word just grab my hand and invite for a dance. He start speaking for much I have inspired him to dance, and what he have felt dancing. We were dancing outside the place in the one of the rainy London evenings and it all came back. If it’s really yours it won’t let you go so easily and all the people I have inspired they all coming back to remind what does it really means to dance. We live with the opened heart every moment teach us something new and I feel as dancing I have learned so much about life.
Cinco… One of my friends few years have told me that if I am doing everything perfectly I am not learning anything, only our mistakes can show that there is still something to new learn. Looking for new inspiration I have found Kizomba actually just 2-3months ago. It might be just a coincidence but first lesson gives me a lot. The same has happened with Kizomba. It was the first lesson teachers turn off the music and ask the partners to lead us by following their hearts. It gave an amazing lesson dancing other dances as well I have learnt to listen. I believe this is important lesson not only dancing but living as well.
Seis… Every moment, every song, every partner, every step it was the new and different lessons given to me. Dance is an art which helps us to express our inner feeling and emotions; it is self-expression and self-searching as well. Through dancing I have found myself, I have found others and the whole world as a One.
Siete… Four years ago I even have not imagined what the dance can give to me no it has become not the part of my life but my life and lifestyle. He comes invite you for a dance, and you become loose and natural learning to listen, to feel the partner. You also learn to trust and follow him with all your body and all your soul. Music it helps to forget about dancing as you become a dance, you drop your personality, all your worries and happiness, there is nothing as real as that moment. Dance becomes like a life it has born with and waiting to die with you when the song ends. The one dance ends and after comes another one who is inviting you for a dance and again something new is coming, new emotion, new expression, new you. And the most amazing that it is endless with every new song there is something new waiting to be born. It is why it is so difficult to express it in words; you just have to feel it and to fall into it. I am just glad to be there and to find some many dancing souls like you.
