Woo Hoo. Had the first dance classes for bigger bodies today (very seriously need a better name). It was a little bit rough which I expected – lots of people at lots of different levels. The people who came were completely awesome and I definitely hope that they will come back.
I found myself getting emotional at various times in the class, just the idea that by sheer force of will the 21 of us had created a space full of body love and movement is completely amazing to me. It’s like, for 2 hours, I got to step outside of a culture that does its best to make me hate my body each and every day, and step into a fantasy world where people with all different body shapes smile, and dance, and laugh.
Today was a great day in my life.
