Dance at Springhouse: An Invitation

- Written by Carolyn Reilly, Springhouse parent and adult programming participant -

On Friday, January 4th, my mother celebrated her 71st birthday. And just a week prior, December 28, 2018, my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Reflecting on these milestones and the past holiday season brings a smile to my face and deep gratitude for family.

On New Years Eve, we all went out to hear live music. I wanted to go dance, and what a great time I had! What really made it special, was seeing my parents get up and dance, too. It was such a joy to see their 70+ year old bodies moving together on the dance floor.

I'm so grateful for dance. The Sacred Dance class through Springhouse Community School has been a life-saver for me. That may sound dramatic, yet it is true. It was a supportive place for me during one of the most difficult years of my life where I could show up and allow my body to move how it needed to; in grief, in freedom, in deep emotional lows and occasional highs.

I continue to dance. At home alone, with my kids, or my husband, and I plan to get my feet to the dance floor at the upcoming Sacred Dance class. It's an investment in myself that I don’t regret for one second.

I invite you to join me and bring your body!
