I used to think it was only when I put on those pink ballet shoes and tied my hair back in a bun that I found a zen moment. I recently joined a tap company (just to try something new). I hadn't taken a tap class in over 10 year so I didn't think this would be relaxing...or pretty for anyone watching. Now don't get me wrong, after a 2 hour rehearsal, my dogs are barking and my mind is tired, but I can still have my zen. I'm working on getting to the pretty to watch stage, but in the mean time I have made some wonderful new friends and I know that once a week I have me time.
People may describe dance differently but for most a good wikipedia definition will do. For me, dance is my zen.
verb (used without object)
to move one's feet or body, or both, rhythmically in a pattern of steps, especially to the accompaniment of music.
