    My Brush With Athletic Greatness

    My Brush With Athletic Greatness

    I should start off by saying that I am phenomenally uncoordinated. At the age of five, I was drummed out of my ballet/tap class by the stern but kind teacher who said, “I’m afraid there’s not much we can do with her,” to my mother right in front of me as she refunded the not unsizable tuition.

    WHY WORKING OUT IS GREAT FOR  ALL

    WHY WORKING OUT IS GREAT FOR ALL

    No matter what age you are working out is good for you! Whether you go to the gym or do it in your home it doesn't matter. I am a senior and I like to dance. It does not matter what music I put on the stereo I will dance to it. When I was young I went roller skating and ice-skating. I was happy doing those things and I was getting plenty of exercises. Today I do not do the things that I did when I was a teenager. But my love for music and dance will never leave me. I like all different music, even Opera is great to listen to and work out too. I also like classical music and show tunes. I do not like country music I prefer the oldies but goodies.

    I let my Spotify choose my jogging playlist: Here's what happened

    I let my Spotify choose my jogging playlist: Here's what happened

    The music you choose for working out can be a very personal choice, which is no surprise considering how specifically personal taste in the music itself is. Despite this, I wanted to add an extra layer to the vocal challenge of the week.

    Why I Became a Belly Dancer in my 40s

    I shimmied my way into the belly dance world at 45 years old. I have always been known as a late bloomer and for as long as I could remember, Middle Eastern culture has been an interest of mine, and belly dancing, a passion.

    The Heart of a Ballerina

    The Heart of a Ballerina

    She steps out into the bright lights of the stage and closes her eyes just for a moment to take it all in. She hears the music begin and she can feel the beat inside her soul compel her to move. Each step she takes is with certainty and confidence.

    The Bug on My Wrist

    The Bug on My Wrist

    It was a Friday in September of 2015. My phone alarmed at 6:30 AM for an 8 AM workout. I almost cried from exhaustion; but even as pitied myself, I knew I was going to roll out of bed, get dressed, and head to the gym.

    Dancing Is Good for Your Soul, Even Ballet

    Dancing Is Good for Your Soul, Even Ballet

    As a ballerina who believes in God, ballet can be an affair of love and hate, just like some passions in life. LOL. Hence, all of life is a dance and we are all dancers in it. As Albert Einstein says, “Dancers are the athletes of God.”

    How to Choose a Martial Arts Gym

    Whether you are a novice or a professional, choosing a suitable martial arts gym deserves time and proper consideration. It’s all too easy to rush a sign-up based purely on location, price, or to train with a famed coach or athlete. While there are advantages to considering either or all of these factors, choosing a gym requires a multi-faceted approach. You may not be able to get everything you want, but it is important that you feel satisfied, comfortable and safe in your new gym.
