"Hold me closer, tiny dancer..."
Yes, the familiar lyrics. But this shirt by Cheerily means something different to me.
I'm a dancer. I grew up dancing, majored in dance in college, and now I teach tiny dancers. It's my passion. I always wanted to be a professional dancer, but life happened, and I wouldn't have had it happen any other way. But I miss dancing like crazy, teaching 3 year olds is not really dancing. I miss the feeling when you're throwing your body around the room in ways you never would have imagined possible. You feel so free, so unstoppable, and so beautiful all at the same time.
And, though I want never want to push my dreams onto Ever, I can't help but pray that she grows up with that same passion. If not for dance, then I hope she finds something else where she finds absolute joy, freedom, creativity, and passion.
