The purpose of to dance! dance! dance!

Some might say that dancing is a frivolous act. I have come to believe that it is essential to life.

And by dancing, I mean all kinds, from the professional performing in a ballet to the amateur sliding across the living room floor in his socks (you know who you are!).

In New York City recently, my friend Ambika taught a group of us how to Bollywood dance at The Open Center. I was very reluctant at first. Me? Bollywood dance?? But I had a little liquid encouragement and the warm and welcoming presence of my new friends. So I did it. And I was terrible! But I had so much fun.

No matter how old you are or how crazy life gets, don't forget to dance.

(This is my kind of Bollywood dancing)
