THE MOVEMENTS OF OTHERS

DECEMBER 5, 2014 LEAVE A COMMENT

There are a lot of people is this world. All of these people have an opinion, and a lot of people have different opinions on dance. Some people love it, some people don’t like it, and some people don’t really know what to think. Most of the people I know that dance love it.

At times some might complain about rehearsals, but when it comes down to it, they like to dance. Sometimes even the teachers just need a break. They are very dedicated and work for countless hours at a time on dances. But if they didn’t love it they wouldn’t be doing what they do. They are doing what they love for a job. Isn’t that what everyone wants in life– to be able to wake up and look forward to going to work? I mean, sure it gets tiring and overwhelming sometimes, but dance is what they love to do.

As for the people that I know that don’t dance, they have a lot of different perspectives on it. Some people just don’t understand why someone would want to dance during almost all of their free time. Especially when you could be doing something else. Some of them think it’s interesting. Some guys think it’s dumb and really don’t understand it. But, there are some guys that think it’s pretty cool.

Sometimes parents force their children to do something they don’t want to do. They really don’t want to be there, but it’s their parents dream for them to dance. You can tell when someone really does not want to do something, especially with dance. They just seem unpleasant. I think that if you are going to dance you really have to have a passion for it. Because if the passion isn’t there, then you don’t really have the motivation to get better. You won’t work harder on something if you don’t even like it in the first place.

So maybe dance isn’t for some people. But it is for me.
