Favorite Quote:
"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."
Aldous Huxley


Toes tapping, hearts racing,
the stage engulfs itself with light
as we predominantly parade
toward our doomsday dance.
We wait as the music prepares its excellence... oh! What the wait!
Nervous I am, as the notes play effortlessly. Tendu... adagio... ballotte... I am barely doing my best.
I come from the air, scared as a soldier under fire.
You catch me, caressing me carefully...
and TOUR EN L'AIRE!
I am flying in your arms.
Flawless.


The author's comments:
Sometimes it takes someone believing in you for you to believe within yourself. I have danced for 9 years in ballroom and ballet... this is about the one recital that I found my true confidence because my partner had confidence within me.
