I ‘m at work Tuesday morning (March 14th) when I get the call that we are closing the cigar shop at 1 PM because the snow was slowing foot traffic to a standstill. After a two-hour drive home in white-out conditions, my wife, Debby, greets me with a proposition… lets make some people smile today and Let It Snow was born!
There is no question that social media has become the ruination of most people who use it daily. Negativity is rewarded with more interaction than positivity as a rule and Debby was tired of reading how much people hate the snow.
In most people, misery is an infectious poison and man does it love company. It spreads like wild fire from person to person. Debby doesn’t allow people’s misery to bring her down, as you will see in our video that has really caught on, she shares her joy with the world and makes herself the antidote.
You won’t be able to help but smile while you watch this video of us teaching together!
I was watching a very long dance lecture that featured Donnie Burns as the speaker. He said something that was so great that I have to share it with you! “You must move yourself, before you can move others.” This statement is really a double entendre.
In a lead and follow situation the leader should be focused on moving his own body from his center and connecting to his follower’s center so she knows to move herself, following his center’s movement. Blah blah blah…I know you have heard this statement formed in an infinite number of ways to explain what we all know to do (even if we never do it correctly).
Looking at Donnie’s statement from an artistic stand point. How can we expect to move/impress/inspire anyone with our dancing if we ourselves are not moved/impressed/inspired by our own dancing? Dance for your self, practice for yourself, move yourself every single day and you will foster that little rockstar that is in you. Once you do it for you, you can feel confident in showing it off to “them.”
