I would love to be able to start an organization dedicated to teaching others to be healthy through dancing and good exercise, but that’s a big dream to have. In order to make that dream a reality, I would start somewhere smaller.
Across the world, people can be seen dancing on sidewalks, parks, fountains, building stairs, or pretty much anywhere outdoors. I think that is an incredible way to promote dance. I would love to get a troupe of friends together to travel the world and perform outdoors. We could offer free lessons, between outdoor performances, could be a great way to encourage others to dance as well. Through all of this public promotion I would hope to bring others to my cause and bring support by teaching themselves or even helping financially.
In 2008, more the 1.4 billion adults in the world were overweight. Dance could help change that statistic. Having a healthy lifestyle is more than just exercise, but it is a vital part of the equation. It’s a gift that I hope that I can give to someone else, just like it was given to me.
