"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

Hello LEO folks! Have you ever wondered your hidden talent? Me, neither.
But hey, after trying this amazing machine here in Japan, I was able to explore something new, a very interesting stuff.
I tried my first dance with it, and it went well (well, for my own standards, probably), but for professional dancers, I don't think so.
Kindly share us your dancing experience and dance moves and let the world see the beauty of dancing with the music! :lol:

    I particularly like salsa dancing, though I'm not very good.
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,984 mod
    Cool! Can you share us some of your salsa dance moves Marianne? @mheredge :)

    I really like dancing, but sadly I'm not talented at it at all, so I don't like to dance in front of other people.
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,984 mod
    Well, when I was dancing using this machine from Japan, I didn't care if the other people were staring at me, as long as I'm enjoying it, no one can stop me. :)@GemmaRowlands

    After all, life is too short, so we have to enjoy every hour, minute and second of our lives. :) So, let's dance! :smiley:

    I was dancing a lot for 7 years(mostly at home and sometimes at the studio), but last year and a half stopped on time. :/

    I like dancing a lot, especially Kurdish dance, and I think it is totally different from the types of dance you know, which are usually collective

    Why did you stop? I know dancing is a good alternative for exercise, am I right? @MarkRavenhoodie

    That sounds cool! This is my first time to hear such Kurdish dance, can you share us some moves @Ezîza ? :)

    Is this the sort of thing you mean @Eziza?

    That is a very good attitude to have and I wish I was more like you, but I do feel very embarrassed if people see me dancing.

    yes @mheredge 😍 this dance is called (bakia).but dance is usually mixed and not just women or girls, and the most common dance is (Kermangi) dance. It is difficult and requires a lot of time to learn.

    Don't worry my friend, you'll get that star soon to post Youtube links. :)@Ezîza

    I also think that dancing is great exercise. I used to go to dance exercise classes with my friends when I was younger, and that was great fun.
  • EzîzaEzîza Posts: 2,627 ✭✭✭✭
    Yeah @kindgnice I'll do my best💪

    It's such a long time since I did any kind of dancing. The last thing I learned was Salsa which I loved.
    I just posted a link to a television programme called 'Strictly Come Dancing' which is a Ballroom/Latin competition. It's very popular but has become a little formulaic for my taste.

    I like music. When is some celebrations I always dance. If I drunk some beer or other alcohol I becoming more happy and relaxing and that cause to dance much more.
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 41,872 ✭✭✭✭
    Is this disco dancing @walter? What kind of music do you like dancing to the most?
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 10,331 mod
    If you want to get some inspiration, you should watch Strictly Come Dancing, which starts this weekend. It means you will see lots of people try lots of different dances!
  • walterwalter Posts: 693 ✭✭✭
    I like to dancing the most in our folk music. Sometimes ours music wake up in mine heart some emotions, but not always, depend of my mood.

    Do you have this kind of dancing machine in your country?

    We have dance machines in amusement arcades and similar, and I have used them before. They are quite good fun when you're with friends.

    It's exactly the same as the one in the top picture.

    In fact, here is a photo of me on the machine! I don't know whether this link will work, but I will try:
