Morning Dance Parties Playlists

#465: Freedom Friday!

Celebrating the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr. said that “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” I say, why can’t that be a dance step? Sometimes I wonder, why am I dragging myself out of bed to dance on Zoom? And then I see the joy it brings to people I love, and I’m glad I took that first step. You never know what change bringing a little joy into the world will make.

Thanks Everyone for joining today! What a lovely surprise to have Eric join us at the end with his exuberant and creative moves!
