People Dancing (Part 1 of a series)

In case you need some models for some aspect of your own life that feels impossible to you now, I’m starting a People Doing Things series on this blog to help you visualize or locate people who look like you doing things you’d like to be doing. I’m aiming to illustrate human diversity, but each post — of course — will not be comprehensive. Pingbacks are permitted on this blog, so feel free to link here if you have an example on your own blog of People Doing Things, and I will update the post to show your suggestions!

To begin with, let’s look at photos, videos, and blogs of people dancing!

That’s Ragen Chastain dancing, by the way. You can read her dance blog here.
