Dance

St.Albans, UK 2018

“It doesn’t matter if I’m off the beat. It doesn’t matter if I’m snapping to the rhythm. It doesn’t matter if I look like a complete goon when I dance. It is my dance. It is my moment. It is mine. And dance I will. Try and stop me. You’ll probably get kicked in the face.”
― Dan Pearce, 

Pelaw Inn, Gateshead, UK 2019

“Dance like nobody’s watching; love like you’ve never been hurt. Sing like nobody’s listening; live like it’s heaven on earth.” -Mark Twain

  2. Beautiful quotes and photos. I don’t have a good relation with ‘dance’. My family never danced, and always made fun of people dancing, so I grew up thinking that it was a wrong form of expression.

  3. A secret – I’m clumsy. I’ve never been good or graceful on my feet, and therefore I’m a terrible dancer. But you know what? I still flop around on the dance floor whenever the mood is right! 🙂 🙂 A very fun post that brought a smile.
