Today, we had a guest come in and teach an arts workshop,Chryssie Whitehead. She was so enthusiastic and full of energy, her passion was totally visible and contagious. I’ve never considered myself to be a dancer, expecially not with a group of people, but somehow Chryssie transformed a group of at least 50 teens into dancers. She spoke of the importance of leaving behind the notion of failure and not to let other peoples’ “”poofs”” (aka thoughts) affet you. It was extremely powerful and I’m grateful for the experience. Speaking of gratitude, happy month of gratitude!
