The Dance was inspired by Oriah, The Mountain Dreamer’s, “The Dance; what if the question is not why I am so infrequently the person I really want to be, but why do I so infrequently want to be the person I really am?” This book inspired me to research and investigate my own thoughts on ‘Authentic Self’. Through The Dance, I explore how my fears and insecurities stand in the way of fulfilling my truest desires and how this ongoing battle has manifested and exhausted itself. Who do we choose to show to the world and does this serve us in life?
