βœ¨β€œβ€ŽDancing is not just getting up painlessly, like a leaf blown on the wind; dancing is when you tear your heart out and rise out of your body to hang suspended between the worlds.β€βœ¨ ~ Rumi ❀️ . .

✨Remember: Life is short, break the rules (they were made to be broken). Forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably. And never regret anything that makes you smile. The clouds are lined with silver and the glass is half full (though the answers won't be found at the bottom). Don't sweat the small stuff. You are who you are meant to be. Dance as if no one's watching. Love as if it's all you know. Dream as if you'll live forever, Live as if you'll die today. ✨ ~James Dean . #thankyou @839photo πŸ“ΈπŸ’—πŸŽ¨βœ¨ . . . . #dance #newyork #dancer #tribeca #nyc #dancelife #artist #handstand #dancing #makensmove #chrismakens #axisconnect #bartonmovement #wolffpack #archcore40 #actor #model #photooftheday #modeling #dancephotography #bboy #jamesdean #love #beyourself #sharelove

✨This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life.
