I fell in love with dancing when I was 12 –
The day my week rushes towards and sags after is Tuesday…after supper I lose myself in a book to make the time go faster…
When I come to the front of the line, nervousness flutters in my throat but the moment I skip forward it dissolves. I curtsy to my partner… I am flying, whirling and spinning… I imagine I am full of light. It cascades from my eyes and smile, swooshing off my limbs like flickering fireflies.
