Dance Diaries Part 1💃🏼:

This is a slightly different post but I think it’s going to be interesting. It’s going to be a little series with updates every now and then of my dancing journey. I actually love the title haha.

Lets go to the beginning… basically I used to dance when I was 8 years old until I was about 13/14 years old, and I even competed and got my certificates etc. It was literally my ultimate passion, and still is.

However, when I stopped at age 13/14 it was due to lack of lessons or access to lessons. There was nothing in my area for me to continue, and I started to feel bad that I had to rely on my parents to take me to my lessons.

It was hard and I definitely lost a part of me giving it up, and I have wanted nothing more than to dance ever since.

Last year something changed (I dunno what) within me and I just knew I had to dance again.  The only reason I keep putting it off is because I was scared. I don’t know why, I don’t know if it was scared of embarrassing myself or not being good enough. But I just kept putting it off.

I finally decided that January would be the time for me to book that lesson and just go. What did I have to lose? New year, new me and all that jazz haha!

Then it all changed because I FINALLY went to my first lesson and just went for it. I was incredibly nervous and did not know what to expect, who would be there and what would happen…

But it was FINE. I didn’t hurt myself, I didn’t embarrass myself, everyone was lovely and funny. There was a mixture of age groups and it was just amazing. It just made me think why didn’t I do it sooner? And that is something that has held me back a lot of times, and really I should just go for it.

About the lesson I did start when they were nearly finished a routine (which was fun haha)… trying to learn a whole dance in 1 lesson was hard. But I had so much fun and I knew this was where I was meant to be. Plus I picked it up a lot quicker than I thought.

Overall: I am so glad I went for it and took that step to do my dancing again. I am happy and this is me, and I have been dancing all around the house. Also I never once felt embarrassed whilst dancing, and the teacher was just so lovely and nice.

Some advice for you guys is to just go for it and don’t let anything or any doubts in your head stop you. If you don’t like it at least you will know and you don’t have to do it again. Otherwise you will always have that “what if” and life is too short for that.

Do what you love and let no one stop you 💚

  1. Giving up dance is so hard – I used to dance from being like 3 years old until I was 15 and I had to give it up for my health and people just don’t understand what it feels like to have it missing in your life. I am so happy that you managed to start dancing again and enjoyed the class you went to 🙂 Keep going gurl x
