Five fabulous poses to make you dance or if you are like me ...sentimental...


Tonight I am feeling sentimental. I totally blame it on HelaMiyo's new pose set Taps. I was playing around with them trying to think up how I can use them to their fullest when I started remembering my older sister.

 She loved to dance. She breathed it. It made her so happy. She was alive when her body moved.

I would sit and watch her gyrate all over the house to any music playing and sometimes only to music she could hear. I would stare at her in awe of how she was able to move. I was all legs and elbows, as in tune with my body as  a newborn giraffe.

Sometimes she would try to grab my hand and pull me into  a spin and I would resist pulling away and somehow she would turn that into a bizarre dance between us.. It drove me so mad during times like that. Her eyes sparkling madly trying to force me to join in on her madness.


She kept her hair in a short bob, not so much because she liked it short, but because it was curly  and uncontrollable. It had a mind of its own. She would spend what seemed like hours in front of the mirror, her feet moving as she danced trying to control her uncontrollable mess.

And her legs, they went on for miles. The guys would always make weird comments to her about them. I, at the time, never understood the odd phrases or why she blushed such a bright red as they asked her to give them a private dance. Looking back I was quite naive, but are we not all like that in the beginning.

Those boys were her downfall. She met the "love" of her life. He loved her dancing.. well at first, then he came to hate it. Slowly over 10 years he removed it from her by force and she stop moving when she fixed her hair, and she moved oh so carefully. One day he decided he was bored with her. He told her he missed how she danced before and his new "Girl" knew how to live. Sadly for my sister she couldn't really say a thing in her defense, she was mute, numb, and paralyzed, because when she tried, she discovered she had forgotten how to dance.

Another ten years have passed since the day she discovered she forgot how to dance. Does she dance now? No, not really she says her feet are broken. She cannot find the rhythm of life anymore. She gets up, goes to work. Comes home, fixes dinner for her children. Watches television and shuffles off to bed. But sometimes when I watch her  as she is getting ready for work, as she is cooking dinner or walking down the hall to bed. It is small, almost unnoticeable, but I see it. I see it -- her foot tapping, her hips jiggling, her soul moving to some unknown tune once more.

Dance Studio by Frozen Panty 
This is an older pose prop I picked up back in 2012. It's a pretty neat prop, loaded with 14 dance animations that I still use on occasion. I did not use the poses in this set, just the room prop. I do not believe it is available for purchase any longer.
