To Dance Is to Be (Thank You Hubbard Street Dance)

To dance is to fly
is to sing with every muscle

is to be fluid
no waste

is to be rhythmic
and graceful.

To dance is to cry
out and in

with every muscle
with every grin or grimace.

To dance is to celebrate
to let out the gift within,

to shout with joy
in every movement,

to pair or part,
to dance alone,

to be with great company.
To dance is to sing,

joy and sorrow in every muscle,
to be fully human…

to be soaring light.
