With the troubles in the world around us, we must find a way out, find a safe place. The place chosen for many is within their own dance space. This might be in a studio, their bedroom or living room. People always tell me they can't dance, they have two left feet but I believe we were all born with some kind of rhythm. Everyones rhythm is different just like our fingerprints. Its what makes us unique!

What will it bring, who will we meet, what adventures will we go on and with who? As we start the year a new, why don't we start dreaming big and setting goals for the year to come!

4. Write it down (Helps to visualise it and monitor it)
