Dance dance dance

My first tap recital at 6 years old. Clad in black leotard, there were photos of me looking at my fellow dancers. Checking to see if I was doing it right.  At prom, my date kept trying to keep up with me and I'd go bounding off on the other side of the floor. On my college hip hop team, I was the one getting called for not hitting a mark or being uniform. like dancing around with other people. But we should have realized it from the beginning: I don't dance well with others.

I'm very much moving to my own rhythm.

This compendium of precocious young dancers is more inspiration for me than for you.
