Express your feelings whatever they are--happy, sad, excited, angry, frustrated, or scared.
Improvise to music you have never heard before or you don't know very well. Let the music move you.
Dream. Close your eyes. Imagine yourself at a ballroom, a party, a concert, a beach or in a field of flowers.
Improve your skills by repeating challenging movements many times. If needed, start slow and do a move three times correctly to build a little muscle memory, then pick up the tempo.
Write a musical. Choreograph it in your head.
Dance to music to help shift your mood. Dancing is a natural medicine.
Watch a dance video or movie. Imagery alone increases the secretion of endorphins, so just watching people dance improves your mood by stimulating your brain in a positive way.
Do your chores to music. Infuse your daily grind with rhythm.
Turn on music from a cable channel or playlist. Dance to songs that inspire you. Sit out the rest. Stay hydrated.
Take a quick dance break. Get out from behind your computer. Just a dance or two will pick you up. Go ahead now!
