I think most end-of-year spring dance recitals in the U.S. are finishing up so I wanted to take the liberty to highlight a couple that I’ve had the privilege of attending – particularly since family was involved.
A couple of definitions of dance on Google are “move rythmically to music, typically following a set sequence of steps” and “move in a quick and live way”. One other is “perform (a particular dance or a role in a ballet).”
To me, ballet is a beautiful form of dance that provides inspiration with a feeling of appreciation and peace to the beholder, and is an outward expression of inward joy.
I didn’t realize this significance until our daughter began dance many moons ago at the age of five through her teens. Below are her photos taken years ago and the rest of the photos highlight wonderful, loving granddaughters.
I wish we had a good camera years ago to capture our daughter’s various dances.
Regardless, we have the memories and joy in our hearts.
Now we have the joy of being involved with our grandchildren. I just sit back and absorb their progress, expression and beauty.
This too brings me joy.
Do you have similar experiences where you can see the grace and beauty being displayed?
How are dance presentations conducted in other countries. Maybe they are called something other than recitals.
May we carry the joy within us and let it flow outward!
Love and Joy,
