A feature film about the career and life of Whitney Houston just released. The title of this movie is one of my favorite songs of hers because of the danceable rhythms, and the lyrics which speak to our desire to have somebody to dance with. I'm sure if you're familiar with any of her music you've already guessed the name of the song. Am I right?
Come on, name that tune … I know you know.
Alright, just in case I'll give you the name of this huge hit …
Ready? Here it is …
"I Wanna Dance With Somebody"
But not just anybody. She wanted to dance with somebody who loved her. And isn't that what we want? To be loved. To have somebody to partner with in this life. Somebody to dance a Pas de Deux with . . . (Pas de Deux - French word for a dance for two).
Dancing with our somebody involves trust, belief, agreement, and sometimes reckless abandon.
Have you ever seen a dance performed by two that defied all sensibility? You know, those partnered dances that bring you to the edge of your seat and have you holding your breath.
Have you ever watched the television show, So You Think You Can Dance? It is on this show that I've witnessed couples dance with incomprehensible connection. Every step, twirl, leap, and jump executed with unbelievable timing, rhythm, expression, and performance.
These choreographed routines were practiced and perfected through repetitive execution; stopping to correct any missteps, rhythmic or timing errors, expression and performance quality. These types of performances come after long, hard-fought hours of work, and provide the audience with awe-inspiring connection and joy.
This has caused me to think about what it means to dance a Pas de Deux dance with God.
Can you imagine it? The divine choreographer, the ultimate dance partner - leading me, leading YOU, in a soul-stirring, heart-pounding, recklessly beautiful dance.
Join me and a panel of experts at Robin's Nest - Pas de Deux Luncheon for a fun interactive time, as we go deeper and learn more of what it is to dance a Pas de Deux with God.
