My name is Danielle Ralph, and I was born to dance. It is my belief that we are all born with many talents that we are to share with many others in our lifetime. Dance is one of the big ones for me, and I would like to share with you an insight to what I have found in the life and world of Dance.
Dance is a creative force. It is an experience of a lifetime and an expression of your soul. It teaches us endless possibility, trust, self-confidence, attitude, cultural unity, respect for one another, joy and laughter. I’ve found love and prosperity, along with the freedom to move – to be – to do – and to have whatever I choose to achieve. Dance is, in fact, A Way of Life!.
The world in which we live is a scramble of emotions stemming from every event, relationship, experience, obligation and dream we choose to take on. Dance is just one of the possibilities on offer in this world, and I’ve found that it is one that will set you free
The experience of dance can transform a life with every beat and step to the music. I have seen and felt this in my life, through my health and fitness, my growing flexibility, body control, and also a great growing respect for my entire body.
I have felt a great shift in the way that I perceive life through my happiness and love, through gaining the ability to create, as well as an understanding of the importance of discipline. Though the greatest gifts dance has given me are the feelings of freedom and the joy of great achievement. Furthermore, I live in awe with the growth of my personal life. Throughout my moments of dance I have stumbled upon great bonds of friendship, true love, career and business ideas, a great drive to achieve, romance, and a wonderful understanding of people from all walks of life.
To break out of your everyday life can be extremely frightening, but to learn to be creative is the greatest gift anyone can give to him or herself. A single dance can change the course of your day. It can put a smile on your face and put you in a state of freedom and joy. I have had dances that have taken me from a state of misery to a place of peace, where I realize that fear and misery are choices, and that I could let go of them and take on the world.
Everyone has tapped their feet at least once or danced around in a circle when something has gone incredibly right for them. No matter who you are I can guarantee that dance will have an effect on your life. It is a great way to meet people, and to get some regular exercise in your life, as well as letting go of worldly concerns, and just getting into a creative space. You will learn things about yourself, and begin to trust yourself when you let yourself free to this wonderful experience.
My growth as a sole human being has launched me into a world of possibility, which I believe is possible for any and everyone. My experience has brought me great love and friendship, travel opportunities, as well as the chance to teach and gift people with the love and ability of dance. From this an absolute confidence has emerged from within myself that has led me to this moment now, where I believe that I can achieve anything that I put my mind to.
So whether you choose Latin, Greek, Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Ballroom or Tap. Music from the 60’s, 70’s 80’s or now. If it’s in a major production, a disco, on the beach or in a dance class, or done solo, in a partnership, a man, woman or child, dancing caters for all walks of life. I’ve found within the world of dance, there is not only a lifestyle, but also a language, fundamental relationships, respect and continuous growth. So let’s put on our dancing shoes, and see what happens when we let the sensation of the music take over our being in this world of opportunity.
