Inspiring Others through Dancing
I’m Linda Michael, a choreographer and dance instructor. I’m also a part time fitness instructor owning a small fitness clubs which has 36 students currently. I love my work because I have been an inspiration to many people especially those who desperately would love to shed off some fat but can’t get themselves to consistently exercise leave alone cutting down of their calories intake.
I started out as a cheerleader during my hay days in high school. I loved every bit about cheer-leading and it is during these numerous cheer-leading activities that I decided that I should pursue dancing as a career. I realized that I had this ability to dance my all without wearing out easily. Therefore the best way to preserve my energies and to make use of them was to become a dancing instructor. Therefore after high school, I went to college where I studied a Diploma in Creative and Performing Arts. After college I spent some years as an actor in local theatres before deciding to go it alone and try my luck.
Living a Purposeful Life Teaching Dancing
For the next three years, I spent my time offering my choreography and dancing expertise services to local dance groups. There are times when I would be hired to adjudicate dancing competitions and other times schools would hire me to train school dance teams. But as time went by, I realised that I wasn’t living my dreams. I realised that a was leading a non-purposeful life because for the past three years of doing this dancing shit, no one would come by and complement me for the work that I was doing.
Dancing Sessions to Help Lose Weight
I felt that I wasn’t accomplishing anything; as if I wasn’t adding any value to the lives of other humans. That made me feel like quitting. I even thought of going back to college to study something else which would be much fulfilling. Feeling quite empty, I decided that once I finish all the projects that were at hand, I wouldn’t be taking any new one, and therefore I would be taking a retirement from the whole dancing thing.
But something entirely happened before I called it quits. That evening, I had just finished some dancing sessions that I was teaching to a school dancing team, when the team’s chaperone came to see me in the company of a plump lady. I was used to that but that day it was entirely different because of the agenda that they brought at the table. The lady who I estimated was in her mid 20s wanted to work with me in setting up a fitness centre. She shared with me her idea of dancing to lose weight. She would be part of the initial class which would attest to this.
According to her, there are people who can’t keep up with the exercising schedules that were recommended due to their involvement, but some simple dancing lessons would help such individual. She also promised to help me get some of my first students.
The idea sounded workable, but promised to get in touch with her soon. I went and made my analyses and realised that here was the lifetime opportunity that I much sought. That how my dreams became valid as I went up to start a fitness centre which would first see my students starts with dancing lessons which would eventually lead to some more exercises after they became accustomed to the routine. Eventually, I was able to assist and make an impact in the society.
