This is Francesca Vinci and I teach English to the first year undergraduate
students. However, I would not be here if there were not my students, my
loud, quiet, fantastic dancers.
They are the AND: they are its walls and its concrete; they are its sky and
etoiles and to shine even brighter they need a guide, as the sailors needed
their Polaris and the Wise Men needed their Bethlehem Star looking for the
Merry Christams from me and my students whose thoughts summerise
the poetry and graceful art that can be almost smelled by entering the
Dancer, sacrifices, discipline, rhythm, music, freedom. Dance is LIFE.
'Dance is the expression of what I have in my soul that I write with my arms,
legs and heart... and the body becomes poetry.'
'A dancer is a soul that follows the rhythm of music and moves gracefully in
the air, while carressing it.'
'... when I dance, I speak of me, of my true self, of my past and of my
exeriences without using words because they are not enough, most of the
'When my body changes through its movements, my inner self changes
itself in its emotions, sensations and personalities.'
Dancing is the best expression of our human and angelic nature.
Buon Natale from us all.
