The Learning in the Sharing Part 2
‘Happiness is in every step you take.’Savvy Raj. With the kids at the School for the Visually Impaired Children.
I went to teach these kids in my spare time
And came back with learnings for a lifetime .
I went there with a dance lesson to impart
And I came home with a gladdened heart
I reached out to hold one hand today
And I was surrounded with tiny arms in sway
I shared with them some fun and glee
And I got in touch with the spirit of dance in me
I understand they may not see my face ever
But their memories are now my hearts treasure
These are a few children in the circle of love
Who cannot see but live happily in the now
For them time is in the sound they hear
Before you arrive they can sense you near
Life is a vision they imagine and sense
Their every movement is real without pretense
They have their insecurities loud and clear
But its their spirit of resilience that makes them dear
Every step in their way is a test of skill
But they march on with steel in their will.
Their light rests within them
As if guiding their path in tandem
Dancing a cha cha with no shoes to wear
Is unimaginable to the elite dancer
But well that’s just how they truly are
Hope to work around and bring them on par
With a song on their lips and the beat in their heart
I envision them dance as they are, for a start
And as time moves on, to cha cha they will train
And write I will , about them again
My earnest writing will find a sponsor
And my prayers for them will get an answer
May be shoes may come to support them some day
But dance we will to swing and sway !
I hear some twenty pairs of dancing feet
I listen to the sounds of their cha cha ing sweet
It does not matter if they perform later
A few more life skills is what they will master
With simple step is the joy in harmony
With songs to help in sensing the synchrony
With sounds of beats acknowledging the interconnectedness
With the rhythm that tunes with the inner consciousness.
As the art of partner dancing can teach lessons fine
Of the world of ‘us’ beyond the mine ….
Yes I am grateful to interact with them upclose…
To sense the happiness that’s within us, if we chose!
This is an excerpt from my writings on The learning in the sharing Part 2….
”Sharing the Magic of movements is a privilege and I value every workshop I have had the opportunity to conduct, in deep gratitude for the learnings in the sharing. Learning to Dance socially is helpful beyond just the entertainment values as it can help in rehabilitation of the body and provides vital tools for reconnection to the body and to the self. The general goals to facilitating our Dance for Wellness workshops besides the simple joys of learning Social Dancing are to help individuals/ groups learning to dance feel stable and safe in themselves and with others, increasing self confidence and self esteem with a focus to integrate the mind and body connection using the power of Dance especially Partner Dancing…. ”Savvy Raj
