I am a dancer. I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living…. In each it is the performance of a dedicated precise set of acts, physical or intellectual, from which comes shape of achievement, a sense of one’s being, a satisfaction of spirit. One becomes in some area an athlete of God. – Martha Graham, c.1953
Do you think exercise has to be dull and boring and repetitious? Well, think again because today we are going to do the “Funky Chicken!” Today is DANCE LIKE A CHICKEN DAY!!! Remember the 1980’s movie “The Blues Brothers” with John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd? It might be a good idea to watch that sometime today just to see some good chicken dancin’.
Dance in the body you have and make it the best you’ve ever done. – Agnes
As you practice the dance, you can incorporate your own unique style. Add a jump or whatever you want to do. The most important thing is to have fun with it. Dancing should not be something that takes a lot of thought process. Life is too serious already – dancing should be fun!
There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good. – Edwin Denby
When you dance, you release endorphins, the feel-good hormone that boosts your mood. It’s not just about burning calories, it’s about having a good time and being silly! Loosen up – lighten up – be silly once in a while! Smile and do the funky chicken to your favorite music! Or just make up your own music.
