When Movies Peer Pressure Us to Dance.
I was definitely influenced by dance movies.
After I saw Footloose and Flash Dance I just could not help myself .. my toes would start tapping, my feet would move, my legs join in .. and the next thing I knew I was twirling and gyrating all over the place, ripping my clothes off so I could just be free and give into the music ... I didn't care what anyone thought. I had to give expression to the music in me, to fight the system, to stand up for everyone. We are all free and dance is an expression of that ... a right ... a DEEEEEEP need!!
I didn't care that it made me different .. that because of it I was pointed at and laughed at and that people were mean to me.
I didn't care that my grandparents kept yelling at me ... "FOR GOD'S SAKE GET OFF THE ORGAN, THE MINISTER IS TRYING TO CONDUCT A SERMON!!!"
Evidently "What a Friend We Have In Jesus" was not a dance tune and pouring the baptisimal water all over me was not appropriate.
I didn't know .. I just knew I had to dance...
