  • Customers came in late. I had to stay late. I left work late. I came to dance practice late. Too late to participate.

    So I stayed late.

    After everybody left, all worked out from three hours of dancing, I put on my dancing shoes and did the routine all by myself. I danced around the room. I owned it with my steps. I owned it with my body.

    Doing my number over and over by myself didn't really make my steps more precise, but it changed my mood and I left a lot happier than I came – late from work.

    I move my body. I change my mood.

    That's how the story goes. That's how I keep it up. Any day. Any time.
