Winter.  (In the Midwest…).  Bitterly cold, gloomy, and slightly depressing, we have to find ways to ‘deal with it’ for roughly 6 months out of the year.  Being active and (DUH!) DANCING helps, but we can’t physically dance everyday, all day for 6 long months…  although you could give it your best shot!!  🙂

While you aren’t at the studio, sweatin’ it out and bustin’ up the dance floor, why not take a load off of your tired, quite possibly sore, overworked muscles and joints and READ!  Curl up on the sofa with a warm blanket, a cup of tea, and a good book to relax that dancing body and forget about the blizzard happening outside the door.  Not only will you be relaxed and rejuvenated, you might actually learn something new!

Below is a list of some really great, dance-related books to dive into this winter (or anytime for that matter!!).

Obviously, this list just barely scratches the surface of all of the wonderful books out there about dance.  So do some research of your own, pick one to start with that sounds interesting, and leap into it, toes first!!  🙂

Happy Reading & Happy Dancing!!
