The holidays are a wonderful time! Family, friends, a warm fire in the fireplace … and best of all …
The Nutcracker! The Joy, the Wonder, the Beauty ! The Nutcracker was the first (and only!) ballet I saw as a child – not until many years later did I enjoy Swan Lake and other classics. So The Nutcracker holds a special place in my heart – whenever I see it, it takes me back and makes me feel young and joyful.
I cried at my first (and only!) ballet lesson … it took many many years before I discovered that I could dance, and find the feeling of freedom, expression and joy that I am so grateful for.
Take your family and embrace the wonder, music and dance!
And most of all, encourage the youthful dancer inside us all to dance with all your heart !
So many forms of dance and expression!
One of my favorite dance passions is ballroom. I am dancing rumba to ‘Y Por Mas’ with Arkadiy Polezhaev at The Diamond Classic earlier this year.
Follow your heart, live your true life!

“Our dancer daughter, Melanie, a young woman of beauty and grace, a joy bringer, died at the age of seventeen. To commemorate her birthday, family members gifted me with a pendant and earrings created by talented artist Cynthia Woong. Captivated by the graceful wearable art, putting it on became a daily ritual. Cynthia, thank you for sharing your God endowed creativity and artistic ability to bring healing to others. I too advocate using the arts as medicine for healing the heart in my loss and grief ministry and practice.” Dr. Delores “Dee” Gulledge www.artsasmedicine.com
