Just let them dance

“While I dance I cannot judge, I cannot hate, I cannot separate myself from life. I can only be joyful and whole. This is why I dance.” — a quote from Han Bos

Parents often marvel at how their children can stay at BVI for seemingly endless amounts of time. When I came across the quote above, it made me think that this intense focus is a big part of it.

To a dancer, dance is all encompassing. When truly immersed in dance, it takes the entire body and mind on a deeply satisfying journey. I think all people seek this in some way and lucky for our dancers, they sometimes catch it whether it be here at BVI or dancing down the grocery store aisle.

In these times, full of social media, texting, video games and whatever else technology brings us, it is good for our children to find a place to be “joyful and whole”. I hope our BVI dancers will take this with them outside the studio, through the summer and throughout their whole lives.
