In dance, one’s center is found through discipline and repetition, grounding and opposition, commitment and passion, humility, taking risks and falling, etc. Nurtured by the creative spirit, it’s where grace and true freedom of movement is found and art is born. And dance is most powerful when shared.
To me, it’s a metaphor of life and of discovering Christ as your Center, the Center of all things. Nurtured by the Spirit, through discipline, repetition, understanding the opposition, passion, commitment, humility, taking risks and many falls, etc. we find true Grace and freedom and are reborn. And then what matters, of course, is what we do with it.
