# Behind the scenes
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 in harmony and balance of the mind and body , it’s about empowering your mind and heart with care and understanding of the relative nonverbal communication through the medium of movement patterns. It’s about taking time to internalize at times complicated moves yet being able to be at ease with your own self so much that the strain of practice 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 the best you can.
As one fine tunes the self to understand and accept the value of the pauses between our moves we reach to our potential heights gradually and learn to be at peace within 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 .In the journey that‘s ever enriching, with experiences that must be savored along the way….
