This is the second six month journaling blog journey. I hope you'll commit to writing in a journal at least once a week to record your dance journey or just to journal. The prompts will get you started for the month. If you'd like more prompts that don't pertain to dance and are more creative in nature, please let me know in the comments and I'll add some non dance prompts, too.
The prompts allow you to write for five seconds or 5 minutes. I didn't set a minimum or maximum time because I want you to get a feel for writing. If you're new, this lets you ease into journaling. If you're a long time journaler, you know to just let it flow for as long as you feel you have something to say.
Keep track which classes you take each week and what you really liked or disliked about the class. Was there something the teacher did that really got you excited? Did you have trouble picking up a certain move or felt uncomfortable doing? Was there a piece of music that you really liked? Why did you feel this way about these things? How did the dance make you feel?
Write the quote and the author, then reflect on what the quote means to you. Describe in detail.
“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.”
You've just gone to a show and seen a famous professional dancer (ballet, ballroom, belly dance, any dance style), You end up meeting them after the show with no fans around. What do you say to them? Do you gush about how great they are or do you compose yourself and tell them you're a dancer and ask them if they have any tips or suggestions?
