Wonderful chat with Joseph about the amazing mental and physical impact dancing has. This was a beautiful conversation without the direct composition about bulimia, however, it does relate in a way of a great release of anxiety, depression, and overwhelms.
And it's NOT ABOUT BEING PERFECT!
How many of you out there love to dance, and just don't anymore because of life's expectations?
A fun fact we talk about is ballet. I wanted to be a ballet dancer however I was too tall. That didn't stop me. Dad and Mom danced the jitterbug, and Dad taught me how to "listen" and communicate with the hands of my partner. I took Jazz Ballet and many other dance styles. I even taught 20-year-olds when I was 38 how hands work when dancing with a partner and how to flip them by having them do that to me to practice before they did it with their dates :). Dancing is life. That is why Joseph was so important for me to have on this podcast. Even if you "wanted to be a dancer", you always can be and Joseph is your biggest fan!
I remember when I was bulimic, and truthfully would not be during the times I would go out with my girlfriend Dee and just dance. Just dance... As Joseph explains, dance is a great way to resolve life issues if you let yourself go.
I love when Joseph has his little quotes. Listen to the Podcast to hear them. Beautiful. One of two of my favorites is "Dance it out".
I highly recommend signing up even if just for ONE Saturday to his dance/movement class. Check out how much fun people are having on his website https://www.567broadway.com
Joseph is obviously humble. So here is more about him and I had to cut some info out so please visit his site.
