Lifting our spirits with some great Dancing Fun!
I am so happy that they managed to get Strictly Come Dancing off the ground in spite of our current situation with Covid-19!
I don’t know about you, but Max and I love watching it every week and it’s a staple fixture in our weekend!
Dancing is just what we need in times like this! Dancing lifts our spirits, keeps us moving, raises our Serotonin level – our Happy Hormone, allows us to connect with others and reconnect with our own partner on a new level, lets our mind focus on something else, creates new connections in our brain and makes us feel sooo good!
Max and I feel so blessed to be able to dance and we love our live streamed interactive dance classes – all of them! Never in a million years did I think we would be running our Dance & Yoga Classes from our Cottage Sitting Room – ha, ha, I would have laughed! Yet, we are having such fun with our Dance & Yoga Friends and it works so well – whether it is all our Zumba & Zumba Gold Classes or our partner dances Salsa & West Coast Swing. Yes, we have jigged our programme a bit to include a lot of footwork in our partner dance classes and we have added Club Cha Cha to our repertoire which is “The Hit of the Lockdown”!
Dancing is so utterly liberating! With so many of us working from home at the moment it gives us the chance to really move! – and you know what? – you don’t need a lot of space for it! The smallest space will do!
Let’s keep on dancing and we’ll dance our way through all of this together!
Silvia & Max
