Dance is my therapy. I’m happiest when I’m in class or on stage. But dance sometimes gives me anxiety. Heart racing, can’t catch my breath, want to hide in a corner kind of anxiety. How can something That fills me so much also cripple me?! I wish I had the answers.
Yesterday happened to be one of those anxiety ridden days. I’m really good at hiding it though and would be more embarrassed to walk out of class than soldier through. Plus, @sillybillygriffin is just about the most calming human in the world, so I knew I was safe. I debated whether or not to even share this video. When Billy called me out to dance with him, I joked to the class that I was about to 💩 my pants. My legs were shaking and I can point out a million mistakes. But I’m trying not to see that. Instead I’m focusing on sharing a space with a dear friend of many many years, doing what we love on a Wednesday night in NYC.
