But after a three year absence, this week she came back to town for a visit and stopped into class. What a thrill for me to dance with her again! I couldn't stop smiling.
Sharon said she hasn't danced since she left. I noticed two things dancing with her: When we dance with other people, our hearts open and we create a bond with them. And even though Sharon stopped dancing for three years, she was RIGHT back in step as though she was dancing yesterday. Folk dancing gets into our soul - or at least into our muscle memory.
