Will You Be Mine?

Will you let me take the lead? 

While your weary head gently rests on my shoulders 

And your hands are warmly wrapped in mine 

Will you dance with me?  Continue reading “Will You Be Mine?”

Dance

D

It’s the fourth day of the A-Z blogging challenge and the letter is D!

So why dance? (Why not daydream which I do a lot or dogs, which are cute as long as they aren’t barking at me) 😀

Dance is an art. An art so intricately designed. It’s completely mind blowing how the body can move in such rhythmic strokes to music! I absolutely love dance and my favourites are hip-hop and contemporary. The union between songs in these genres and the body movement is simply amazing! Well, if you were wondering, I dance-but I’m still a ‘closet dancer’ 😀

Dance expresses emotions in the rawest forms. If it’s anger, you can see that in dances like krumping. If it’s love, you can see that in contemporary or ballet. I’ve also learnt to channel my emotions to dance. When I’m sad, I dance. When I’m excited. I dance. And no, you won’t catch me dancing just yet 😀 Well, not until I go for proper dance lessons.

My love for dance started from watching a lot of dance movies (the likes of Save the last dance, You got Served, Honey, Stomp the Yard, Step up etc). I still daydream that ‘the one’ may just be my dance instructor or something *lovestruck*Lol.

I’m not always happy when I visit churches and there’s no dance unit. Come on! This may just be the only talent some youths have and I strongly believe it should be harnessed to the glory of God. David in the Bible was equally a crazy dancer. There’s this popular song ‘when the spirit of the Lord is upon me, I will dance like David danced…’ Now that the Spirit is within you, wotchu waiting for? Dance!

Dance is a beautiful art! It’s also a good form of exercise. Try out Zumba dance videos if you’re crazy about keeping fit 😉

I say this again, dance is a channel for the expression of emotions/feelings. Whether it is sadness or gladness, you can always express it in dance!

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness- Psalm 30:11

The joy of our hearts has ceased; Our dancing has been turned into mourning.– Lam 5:15

Don’t put dance in a box, let dance flow. Be as creative as you can with dance, that’s the beauty of it!

So how about you- do you dance? What’s your favourite type of dance?

4 down, 22 to go!

Lots of love,

Perfect Daydream

In my perfect daydream, am a dancer and you’re my instructor,
I dance to your tune as though you’re my regulator,
Our bodies move in rhythm,
Not to the beats by Dre but by Heart,
We tango so perfectly we can’t be torn apart

We are so Hip and we hop as bunnies,
So cute, so fluffy, they call us honeys,
You are so funny,
You make me laugh so hard even when I make mistakes so many

We waltz under the moonlight,
The playground becomes our stage,
We dance till we see the sunlight,
With you I want to age,
We are like two halves becoming one,
There’s nothing we can’t get done

They call us contemporary dancers,
Cause we dance in the contemporary era,
I make you laugh when I say cheesy stuffs like that,
And yeah I like you in that black hat,
It contrasts with the colour of your heart

I dance like Cinderella,
Under your umbrella,
Its raining ,
But we still continue training,
My heart is beating louder,
As you come so close to me

Tick tock,
One, two, three,
Steps keep coming up,
They should be called the Step Up Revolution,
We aren’t even bothered about the clock

I want to dance with you forever,
No matter the weather,
Regardless of whatever,
With you I’d never say never
