We Came to Dance

Dance heals. Dance inspires. Dance touches you in ways that nothing else can. Dance has been a lifesaver for me because without it, fibromyalgia would be kicking my tail. But with dance on my side, I am kicking fibro’s butt on a daily basis. Do yourself a favor. Put on some music and let yourself go! Go out dancing. Take a dance class.

Just. Get. Moving.

Ladies Night with Baile con Sazon pics!

I had such a great time at my retirement celebration at DAP Drink and Paint in Fayetteville with the wonderful and talented painter, Shajana Evans, that I had to do it again.

We had a great time with paint, wine, laughs and great company.  Be on the lookout for our next event! We started with a Ladies Night. Maybe Couples Night? Or a Family Paint Party?

Check out the progression of my flower. Shajana is amazing instructor, because I can barely draw stick people! 🙂

What Do YOU Feel When You Dance?

I love this question asked by Ana Masacote of Masacote Entertainment out of Boston. She is a beautiful, talented dancer who has inspired me more than she knows.


“What do you feel when you dance?”

Tonya Jump2

I feel freedom when I dance.

I’ve got fibromyalgia so every day of my life is filled with pain.

But when I dance,  I am free of pain.


I’m filled with joy.

I’m connected to my partner…

and the music…

and the energy of all the dancers around me…


I feel beautiful…

And strong…

I feel loved…

and I feel blessed to have this gift of dance. It is an amazing outlet.

So tell me, what do you feel when YOU dance?

God Bless and Take Care
Love, Tonya
