Throughout the dancing room
There was joy in full bloom.
While feet anf bodies moved
Gracefully and gladly attuned
At the center of this dancing joy
Stood a short couple, tall in heart
Their gracious teaching a part
Oof all who danced hearts of joy
Once young and full of life & dance
They beamed to see their reflection
Students come to show appreciation
This admiration happened, not by chance
Radiant and reflective is the dance of joy
It filled the room, as in their hearts blossomed
Amazing and awesome is the fruit of joy
Of life and love: the dancer of in all adored.
There is an endless dance of life
It is seen in an internal dancing part
It is visible in the eternal dance of heart
It is not taught but lived into every life.
So here is the lesson of life we all
With one voice say thank you to you
It is to keep dancing in your heart
Even when your body falls apart!
The forever dance of the hearts
The rhythm of life, you taught well
It is the round dance of heaven
Thank you, our hearts do tell
The tale of two: one a teacher
The other a reflective modeler
So when the choice is "sit out or dance"
See the choice, take the chance and dance
Esther and Irving
50 years of dance an eternity of joy
