I’ve been so exhausted lately. I haven’t been sleeping well because I’m letting small stressors build up and throw me off balance. I spent all day in rehearsal just feeling down. Feeling like I couldn’t get the energy to keep up. It’s days like this that make me think “why do people say I’m living the dream? This isn’t the dream. I’m effing tired and I want to go home. I don’t want to be a dancer today.” After rehearsal I came home and read a book, took a bath, and had a glass of wine. I was able to chill enough to remember I love dancing and I danced on the patio for an hour to prove it. Sometimes you just need a reminder to pull you home. I am a dancer. I’m happy to be a dancer. I am fulfilled. ❤️ 🔥 .. .. .. #iamadancer #dance #dancer #dancersofinstagram #instagramdancer #silhouette #silhouettedancer #patiodance #sunsetdance #azsunset #azart #azartist #silhouette_creative #bestsunsetview #sunset #azsunset #dancerinsilhouette #dancersofaz #followyourheart #lovewhatyoudo #loveyourlife

– Plus Size, Dancer. I am a dancer. Denying what others say I am still a dancer. Overcoming and ignoring the critics & opinions about me was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do to believe I was one. Obviously, I’ve never been confident with my body. How on earth would I have been comfortable to put it out there and join a room full of (what I thought would be) skinny people? I pushed myself to start, mainly because of my insecurities, assuming that me standing in the back row would maybe help practice an activity I loved from afar. I felt different. Very different. And didn’t really feel like I would ever belong. Soon enough though, with the weeks passing by, I started realizing that it was all, IN MY HEAD. Everyone was so friendly, and people actually loved me. I had never gotten a wrong stare. Why did I put myself in a situation that didn’t even exist from the first place? I realized this was a community that spoke a different language than what I was used to, a language not based on stereotypical appearances or superficial looks. When I realized that, everything switched. I began grasping the dances better, & I began to see PROGRESS. I began to allow my body to actually have the chance to learn how to dance, instead of blocking it due to what society had put in my head. I began to feel like I belonged. & for the first time, I dared to move to the front row. All this useless self hate disappeared, dancing felt GOOD! Dancing changed my life, turned it around fully. Now, I can talk to more people without doubting myself, I can even WEAR the things I want without thinking whether I’m going to get looks or not. Being able to defy myself and dance made me strong and confident, unlike the old Maryam, who was shy and very self aware. I know that may be crazy to say, but I now believe all those people who tell me I am beautiful. I am a dancer and I love being one. . I am plus size, & #iamadancer #dancersprofile #shareyourstory

Assil Wansa – Shy personality, Dancer. . I’ve always loved to dance. What pushed me to start is my cousin Lynn, she knew I had always been craving it. I won’t lie, it took me a while to grasp my courage and make that first step. And with no surprise, my first classes left me really uncomfortable and shy. I felt like I was being watched the whole time and I was scared of judgment because I wasn’t good. But as time passed, I got to know everyone a bit better and saw how nice and supportive everyone was, so I started to loosen up a bit. I realized that just as I was focused on myself, everyone did the same as well, and no one actually watched me. Everyone was here to learn, everyone was here to improve, and everyone was here to HAVE FUN. It was not a test to pass. Nor was it an audition to get rated on. I would catch the dances very often, and very often not! And those moments of “fails” were actually the funniest moments at dance, not taking myself seriously, and seeing that not catching a choreography only meant I had more room to learn. I felt a great progress in not only my dancing, but my thinking and personality as well, which made me love dancing even more. I can’t really explain how far I have come since the first day I started and where i am now. This new approach on life made me become a more confident person in dance and in my everyday life. . I am a shy person, & #iamadancer #dancersprofile #shareyourstory

• Building my Pyramid • I used to be a chronic gamer. 10-12 hours in front of the computer escaping reality and getting into myth and magic. There was a deep lack of connection to myself and the world. After 9 years of physical activity, stretching and better food, I was able to reverse the sands of time, cleanse my body of its thousands of knots, and find the myth and magic in reality. I started my journey not being able to touch my toes. I injured my lower back 3 times to the point where I couldn’t walk or bend. Today, I feel blessed that I can find the fun in Life that I did in video-games. The next time you want to judge someone who loses themselves in a video game, consider that they are finding something in the video game that they can’t find in reality. Talk to them and ask them why they need to escape. Don’t let the cycle perpetuate. Today I feel blessed that I persevered and found Patience. #pyramidpose #fun #beauty #athletics #ballet #yoga #flow #flowing #flexibility #flexible #ancients #patience #blessed #eagle #boysdancetoo #arabsdancetoo #iamadancer #selfacceptance #expression #instalove #instajoy #videogaming #nonjudgement #connection

A little Friday night stress relief - playing with my @bhcosmetics Take me Back to Brazil Rio edition palette! Starting my eye make-up testing now so I'm ready come February 22nd! Not pictured: fabulous false eyelashes, lip color (still TBD), and some sweatproof foundation that will make me look a little less tomato like on performance night. 😋 The lighting kinda sucks, but you get the idea! #bhcosmetics #takemebacktobrazilpalette #takemebacktobrazilrioedition #samba #riosamba #sambanope #sequinsandfeathers #makeup #eyemakeup #iliveforcolor #curvysambista #iamadancer #plussizedancer #idontthinkyourereadyforthisjelly

For me dancing is not "me dancing" is the esence of life flowing in me ,or in u or in every body ! It is me honorring life by flowing whit her rivers and it beats !

Adam Krayem, Gross Motor Coordination- Dancer. . Having gross motor coordination difficulties was not easy for me. I used to be clumsy and I hated it. One day, I decided to celebrate my 8th birthday at what is today my dance academy. There, I met my breakdance coach Amine. It was the first time I ever danced, and I loved it so much. Ever since, I decided to enroll in this new activity, not sure if I would be able to continue since dancing is all about coordination. Luckily, I really loved the class. I made amazing friends and my passion for breakdance grew class after class. I used to practice coach Amine’s homework every day at home and come to the next class ready to show him. After a couple of months, coach Amine told my parents that I was one of the best members in the class. All my friends in class looked up to me and encouraged me. Besides, I used to be very shy. But breakdance changed me amazingly. I really don’t know how, it was like a miracle. . I have gross motor coordination difficulties, & #iamadancer #dancersprofile #shareyourstory

Sara Karrit- Veiled, Dancer. . Tout a commencé au Senegal il y’a 4ans, quand je me suis inscrite dans un cours de Zumba. Je me suis mise au fond de la salle tellement je suis timide. La proff de Zumba m’a quand même vu et m’a demandé de monter sur le podium et c’est là que tout a changer, meme si pour certain, le voile était un probleme pour la danse; enfin c’est la societe qui le dit. Je me suis quand même lancer la dessus et j’ignorais les blablablas. Quand je suis rentree au Liban j’ai decidé de donner des cours de danse Africaine, ça m’a causer beaucoup de problèmes vu que suis une femme voilée. J’ai eu beaucoup d’interviews avec des journalistes et pleins de commentaires negatifs comme “pourquoi pas faire du porn hijab” (le commentaire qui m’a le plus choquer). C’était vraiment dur. Mais aujourd’hui rien ne changera le fait que je danse et que je suis voilée. C’est trop facile de juger. La danse est un art, comment on considere ça comme denier ma religion? Il nous manque un peu plus de culture dans ce pays. C’est ce que je veux et je suis faite pour! Merci à ma famille, mes amis, mes eleves et surtout les danseurs proffesionnels du afrobeats qui m’ont encourager à continuer ce que j’aime faire.

And my school and my teachers, I love my friends, I love my siblings they helped me a lot. We used to dance at home always. Now I am dancing here and at home and everywhere. It’s the best. Everyone used to say “no if he has down syndrome he cannot dance”. I didn’t believe them because I used to dance with my siblings I used to always say we are all the same. I don’t think they are right. Everyone here says we are the best and that we are stars. I want everyone to be as strong as me. If I can do it you can. .

Ahmad Santina- Medical Student, Dancer. . As a medical student, I do not have time to do a lot of activities to truly vent out the stress I have. We, medical students, residents and doctors, have a very stressful life and yet, are reluctant to go after things that can actually make us feel alive. Dancing has always been my stress reliever. Whenever I am in class, I just zone out and forget about everything happening in my life. I discover a different aspect of my personality in every single dance routine, and I love having a space to finally breathe and break free from all of society’s expectations of what I should or should not do in order to be successful in my field. What is success after all? Is it adhering to a specific uptight high degree status? Or is it to relate to humans, and connect with your others in order to -in my case, make them heal, on a physical but also emotional level? Screw the mentality here. I get a lot of positive feedback from my peers that I am managing to find time to do what I love & it impresses a lot of them. But let’s face it, I also get a lot of negative feedback from others, telling me that I will need to stop dancing when I officially become a doctor, because people would stop taking me seriously as a physician. I will never understand why we are so stubborn on wanting to categorize each one in a specific restricted bubble, & give ourselves the right to command other people’s lives. Yes I am a medical student, I can be serious, and I can sure as hell be fun. I can be scientific, but I can also be artistic. I believe my breath of fresh air is my strength, it is sad to be living in a society that bashes it. .

Leen Farhat – Mental health survivor, Dancer. . I suffer from anxiety & depression, and while words always failed to help me describe what I’m going through and what I’m experiencing, dance didn’t. In dancing, I always felt like I could communicate what I was feeling and express it in such a meaningful way. It helped me become a different version of myself that I always wanted to be, with every character I got to play in each dance. Each dance had a story, & it was my story to finally tell after years of being silenced and told what to do and how to feel. Dancing was the only thing that didn’t take away my voice, it gave it back and it gave me power and autonomy. It gave me the needed confidence to go on with my life, it gave me back the ability to love and be proud of myself. Because of dance, I finally felt accomplished & it contributed to my personal growth. . I am a mental health survivor, & #iamadancer #dancersprofile #shareyourstory

Lea Ladki – Diabetic, Dancer. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 1 year ago. Although that was a huge change in my life I decided to overcome it with understanding and determination. Hearing those changes really affected me because of the many new challenges I would have to face like hypoglycemia (meaning low blood sugar) which causes me to feel dizzy, sweaty, & makes me shiver; & Hyperglycemia (meaning high blood sugar) which causes me to only feel very thirsty. I cried and asked myself so many questions. But then I took a step back and learned that I should appreciate life even more. I’ve been dancing with @lynegandour.playbeans ever since I was a younger child, and even though I heard the news while I was still at dance, diabetes didn’t stop me. I kept on moving on in life and I always kept a smile on my face at all times. A lot of people asked me questions and asked me “what is this on your arm”, (because I have a sensor on my arm to check my sugar), but I just was happy to explain. I decided to continue dancing and loving my life regardless of my censor and my new obstacles. Dancing helped me disconnect and forget about all my worries. It also helps my sugar level adjust if high, and the most important thing is that it just made me happy. My message to you is keep on moving on in life be positive and thankful. .
