As I was doing my morning pages I was thinking about this post, Get Moving Monday, and how I am not motivated to exercise. I really don’t like to even think about exercise; which led me to thinking about dancing, which led me to thinking about when I first started dancing. I thought about the ninth grade because that is when my dancing started to get noticed. It wasn’t like ballet or jazz it was more like boogying on the floor. I was all over the place.
I was suddenly once again eight years old and my mom was putting on music for us to clean house to. I loved that music. It was fun and fast and I would twirl and swing all around the living room. It was the only time cleaning house was fun. That is when my love for music and dance began.
There are certain beats that can get me moving more than others. What type of music gets your blood pumping? You don’t need motivation for exercise; you need motivation to move and music can do that.
My Top Three Get Moving Music this Week
- Bullet Proof by La Roux – Danced with my one month old grandbaby to this
- Tammy Tama by James Asher – Danced to get ready for my writing
- I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas – Danced with my 2 ½ year old granddaughter
Now it is your turn. What is your earliest dancing memory? What was your favorite Get Moving music that you listened to this past week? How did you move to it? Were you cleaning house, writing, dancing, or bebopping at work? Did you allow the music to uplift you and move more this past week? How do you feel after moving your body more through dance? Did you Dance?
