Motivation from a High School Dancer
I went to see Trolley Dances in Riverside today. It was indeed very interesting watching all the various dances, although I do have to write a paper about it … later. Okay, I’ll just cut to the chase…
At the end of the first performance (it was kinda like a salsa dance, pretty cool right?)… then the performers started to come to the audience and guess what… lo and behold I was one of the chosen one. She grabbed my arm to pull me out to dance with her, I was thinking “I can’t do this, I don’t know what to do, I can’t dance”. It’s like she read my mind — she said “You can do this, you have it in you." I guess it applies to everything else in my life too.
Most people look down on people that want to pursue their dream careers in art; like dance, but hey, this school is a charter school which makes the dances just as rigorous as the math and sciences that everyone else claim to be harder.
行行出狀元, which is an idiom that “in every trade, a master appears.”
Thanks child, I needed that, you’ll go far… I know it. Thank you for dancing with me.
And you, yes you dearest reader… you’ll go far and be successful too. I believe in all of you. :)
