People may say I can not dance.

People may say I should not dance.

But no one will ever say I did not dance. 


I hated these pictures when I first saw them. HATED them. I know how dance makes me feel, but I seldom see glimpses of myself outside from glimpses of myself in a studio mirror. But then I stop and think how far I’ve come. Just over a year ago, I became battery operated (that means I got a pacemaker, for the uninitiated). 8 months ago I had open heart surgery. 6 months ago I started fighting to get my life back. My body isn’t something I love despite itself, my body is something I love because it got me through. It can dance, it can be graceful, it got me through hell and back. It is bold, and yes it is big, but it has never failed me yet.

This is my body. It’s a good body. And it will always dance.

"We say yeah with fists flying up in the air 
Like we’re holding onto something that’s invisible there’ 
Cause we’re living at the mercy of the pain and the fear 
Until we get it, forget it, 
let it all disappear…”

Beautiful dance to a beautiful poem!


This is the last dance I did with the dance and mime troupe, Urgent Message. The dance and mime troupe is under the Elon University Gospel Choir at Elon University. 

This a very beautiful lyrical dance to the song Deep Blood Red by Mali Music. Enjoy!

Beat Club freestyles to Joshua Bennett’s 16 Bars For Kendrick Lamar

No big edits.  No special effects.  Just dance.

To some people this whole Kendrick Lamar thing is just a bunch of battle/beef raps. Its much more than that. Kendrick Lamar brought attention to a movement that’s already begun that values skill over fluff. Over the years the varying forms of expression has slowly devolved from deep meaningful messages to superficial pieces that lack substance. Rap, dance, television, and other various mediums of art have been taken out of the artists hands and now artists are rising up to claim their “stages”. What Kendrick is saying is that it doesn’t matter how much money you make, what car you drive, or what jewels you rock….the only thing that matters is if you have skills and if you do then…”see him on the mic”

Pause. Why did I just find out the Beat Club has a Tumblr?! Play. WATCH THE VIDEO.

I am not in a rut.

The desire to have a job is no longer stressing me out. It’s no longer being placed above my desire to love and serve God. I’m acknowledging this period in my life as a new chapter and not as a waiting period. I’m learning to be proactive. I’m not just waiting for a job, I’m writing a novel (fun and nerve-racking woot woot). I’m trying to find somewhere I can dance because I miss it so much. I’m trusting God and by doing that, I’m not limiting my future. I was very focused on getting a job in journalism, but by using this time to write now, maybe I’ll be able to start my dream job of being an author. Who knows?! But what I do know is that I’m not in a rut. I won’t be miserable because I don’t have a job. I won’t worry so much about school loans. I’ll just trust God and I’ll write. And I’ll dance too.


Today I’ll be teaching my cousin and sister how to mime and I’ll be teaching them a hip hop dance. It’s going to be a fun day.
