All I Really Need To Know

... I learned in dance class:
Show up on time.
Practice the steps.
Follow the teacher.
Stand up straight.
Do your best.
Don't be hard on yourself.
Be wary of slippery surfaces,
Try not to get discouraged.
Try not to run into others.
Take up space,
But not too much.
Find your balance.
Turn, turn, turn.
Don't forget to spot.
Stop when you're dizzy.
Catch your breath.
If you don't get it, try again.
Remember to count.
Reach higher.
Suck in your stomach.
Act like you know what you're doing.
Dance like you mean it.
Keep coming back.
(apologies to Robert Fulghum)
