Dance Like No One Is Watching - 060323

Work like you don’t need the money, love like you’ve never been hurt, and dance like no one is watching. ~ Satchel Paige
Dance when no one is watching. ~ Andrew Weitzen
Someone is always watching. ~ Sheldon Weitzen

My Dad used to say, "You are never alone. Someone is always watching."

After college, I was living in Manhattan in a studio apartment with a large window in the back. Across from me, lived a woman. Her bedroom window, which faced mine, had some horizontal, narrow blinds, with gaps between them. In the gray, flickering light of a TV, you could not see through well enough to make out details, but you could tell what was going on. She was dancing around naked.

When I was in college and had the house to myself, usually late at night, I used to do the same thing, with a little bit more clothes on.

Out in public, I don't know whether it is better to dance like no is watching, or like everyone is watching, but one thing I found helpful is to watch yourself on video.

After getting over the initial shock of realizing that I don't look like a movie star, and getting over the embarrassment of seeing what I really do look like, I found the video to be a great learning tool.

There is nothing like dancing when you think no one is watching. Give it a try and try recording yourself on video while you are doing it.
