the dance floor is a sacred space.
NO PHONES. NO CAMERAS.
LISTEN FOR A YES. RESPECT A NO.
NO OUTSIDE SHOES.
DANCE HOW YOU WANT. NO JUDGEMENT.
When we step on the dance floor, we include our whole selves,
even the frightened parts that want to hide. We dance through pain and sorrow.
We dance with joy until our hard edges soften and our masks fall away.
We meet other courageous dancers, weaving unbreakable threads of connection.
Our friendships transcend the boundaries of time and space.
And it all melts together–
into a swirling vortex we call community.
As the throbbing pulse of the dance floor matches our own heartbeat,
we know, without a doubt, we are not alone.
