Just Dance.

Hiat Labib - Friday, November 08, 2013

Parents, teachers, caregivers, babysitters... tell me you dance!?!
I was privileged enough to meet two very cool and super practical parents this week.
It was their very first teacher/parent interview and the pleasure was all mine. 

In the middle of the interview, when I was at a loss of words on how to explain 
my wonderfully wild student (their daughter) the perfect word popped out; joyful. 

"She is just so joyful" I said.. "and she loves to dance!"
Her parents responded, "Well, we have nightly dance parties"
That explained it, I didn't need to hear any more.

If this doesn't make sense to you then I'm challenging you to 
stand in a room with a dancing child and not feel the joy... rising. 

When I saw the video of Deborah Cohen this week (a superwoman and supermom in her own right)
dancing before her double mastectomy I saw the same joy as I do when I stand 
in front of my preschool class. 

It's a touching few minuets that made me realize
that we all need dance parties, with our friends, with our familes...

Like Nike says, Just do it and create a big ol' pile of joy on your dance room floor.
