    But if you are looking to express yourself as yourself, and feel weird taking on a different dancing persona- why not try playing the storyteller?
    Yes, I feel much more like expressing myself, finding what is inside me and bringing that out. Surprising myself and others.

    I LOVE that idea, wildflowr! Yes, it takes a lot of pressure away, because it is not all about "ME" which is just an Ego-trap anyways...eather feeling like "I" have failed or "I" have been fantastic.
    No, I would rather be a channel, a medium. I am not the one producing the magic. The magic already exists. What I can do is let it flow through me and let myself and others perceive it. After all thatīs what art is all about, right?

    Try to concentrate on that.
    Yes, I love it! Thanks for putting me back on track.

    Sometimes I forget why I am even doing all this. It is so easy to get distracted by all the glamour and glitter. It is really a personality training not to fall into all those traps....beauty issues, judgements, competition, fame,...

    And on goes the journey....

    When you finally get in touch with your inner bitch, which stands for "babe in total control of herself."
