Dancing Right Where You Are!

“Dancing is joy leaking out through the feet.”

It is really hard to be anything but happy when you are dancing to music that you love. It doesn’t matter what style of music you prefer, moving to the beat puts a smile on your face and a tune in your heart.

Dancing does not have to be on a dance floor or even standing up! You can move your arms to the music, bob your head or tap your foot right where you are.
