Demystifying the Shroud of Glamour

 When I say I am a Ballroom and Latin dance form  trainer … there is this natural association with everything  glamorous , high heels , fancy bare all clothes , svelte  tanned bodies , hairdos and glitter , there is youth  , shows and events galore , a fancy personal life filled with parties and a fabulous nightlife  life may be . 

Far from it is the truth , actually it’s so much more than just that , it’s about raising your conscious awareness of the  harmony and balance of mind and body , it’s about empowering your mind and heart with care and understanding of relative nonverbal communication through the medium of patterns of movement . It’s about taking time to memorize at times difficult routines and yet being able to be at ease with your own self  so much that the strain of practise never shows.


It’s about making friends with your mental physical and spiritual body and creating a dimension of composure and gratitude  for another to be inspired enough to want to learn from you . It’s a huge responsibility, to make a connection with a human being and sustain it gratefully whether it is for a class a, a dance or a lifetime.   

 It’s a huge juggling act more so ,  if you have other interests as well , professionally and even personally , being a mother , a wife , a daughter  and most of all a free spirit .Its about understanding the perspective of the  space in between all that you are and all that you want to be and  managing your creative resources well. 

As we reduce the gaps between we reach to our
potential heights gradually and thus learn to be at peace with in and around us .  In the truest realm when we focus on any art form  it’s about bringing discipline and dedication in every aspect of one‘s life , learning and growing all the way . The journey that‘s never ending, and experiences that must be savoured along the way .
