I remember when dancing was the last thing I wanted to do. I was always the one everyone laughed at so I looked for any excuse to avoid dancing. At all the school dances, I was so self-conscious; I felt like everyone was making fun of me.
About six years ago, things changed. My friends introduced me to contradancing -- my oh my! Can we say fun? I absolutely love it! I still won't say I'm the most gracious on the dance floor but it's soooo much fun. Dancing clears your mind so that you think of nothing else. It's such a great stress release and fabulous exercise. You can see a contradance in action by clicking here. So whether it's in a public place with friends or in your kitchen with the ipod, put on your dancing shoes and bust a move!
