Dance: the movement of the body in a rhythmic way, usually to music and within a given space, for the purpose of expressing an idea or emotion, releasing energy, or simply taking delight in the movement itself.
How long has it been since you danced? Really danced–letting go of all stress and just taking delight in the movement itself? For Brad and I as a couple it has been a while. We used to love dancing! We would go every single weekend when we were dating. When I sit and reminisce about those days I am filled with pure joy! So why did we stop? Life got in the way I suppose.
Enter Addi & Max….they have brought that fun back into our lives! Every time we have an overnight–after dinner is done, one of the kids yells “Alexa, play <insert their favorite song of the moment>, and we all dance around the kitchen like crazy. Thus the sign that is now a focal point in our kitchen. We play new music that they are obsessed with and then we play old music that Brad and I are obsessed with…and we abandon all cares and just have FUN!
When the evening is over and jammies are put on and teeth are brushed, we snuggle in with movies. Only to wake up and…..DANCE AGAIN! Isn’t it amazing that with all the toys and gadgets out there, that you can have so much fun just dancing.
It is a must that all members of the family join in on this family fun! Afterall, this is a great activity that is sure to bring smiles but also is a great form of keeping active with the whole family. More fun can be added in with the addition of this awesome game…. Check out this entertaining family dance game! This will be sure to have the kid’s often saying, “let’s dance!”
I ask again, how long has it been since you danced?
