The dramatic changes that come as winter gives way to spring make our bodies and souls want to express the joy of this new environment. One activity that makes the most of this newfound energy is dancing. Music and dance can temper any mood, elevate the spirit, and release a rush of endorphins. The sense of well-being that comes from dancing is a priceless gift that we experience far too infrequently. Music and dance release tension, allowing our souls to become free. Choose any music that moves you. After thirty minutes of dancing and listening to some great music, a transformation of spirit will have taken place. You will feel good.
