Dance has always been a part of my life in some form or another. It has been a source of my greatest joys, like when my family would have dance sessions in the living room or when I’ve had the opportunity to perform on stage in front of audiences large and small. Dance has also been the source of some very deep wounds, like the many times I’ve been a wallflower at school dances or wedding receptions desperately hoping someone would ask me to dance and never getting asked (Perhaps never is too strong. Rarely is more accurate, but it felt like I was never asked).

Not only am I a dancer, I am also Catholic. For years, I had the misconception, as many do, that dance and traditional Catholicism were at odds with each other. The delicate issue of whether or not dance as an expression is acceptable in this hyper-sexualized culture has often nagged my conscience. I kept the two aspects of my life separate until I realized that while dance is a part of my life, Catholicism is my life. My Catholic faith and dance have been co-existing for years; I just didn’t realize it.

This blog is intended to share what I have learned and continue to learn about the art of dance in union with the Catholic church. I pray that, in time, it will become a source of reference and encouragement not just for other Catholic dancers, but for any Catholic that enjoys dance.
