3 Videos to Inspire You to Dance, Dance, Dance in 2012

"I was a dancer all along"
- Lykke Li, Dance, Dance, Dance

Ever since I was a little girl I've loved to dance, which is why I keep watching this video that my friend, Gabriela, posted on her Facebook page last month: "Two year old doing what she loves. Dancing."

Don't you think the world would be a better, saner place if we all danced more? I'm going to say it here: In 2012 I would like to be a part of a dance flash mob, like the one that happened in the Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport:

Have you ever been a part of a dance flash mob? Was it fun? How did you find it?

In the meantime, I'll be dancing in my friend Heather's ShimmyPop! class at Hipline, a belly dance fitness studio in Berkeley and Oakland. If you live, or visit the Bay Area, you *must* take a class here.  It's super fun!

Will you be dance, dance, dancing in 2012?

Why not start by trying this Hipline January Move of the Month!

  3. I thought you might like to be aware of this online resource group:

    Healing Dance Network - a web between the various healing dance studies,
    theories, practitioners and proponents through which to find, share and
    expand knowledge and understanding into the possibilities and realities of
    healing through dance. I am hoping you will let us know about your own
    search and findings and how we might work together to bring our learning
