Dancing. There isn't a single person who doesn't do it (yes, even those that say they don't). It's an innate human characteristic, deriving from not only the ability, but also the desire to move. Some people shy away from it, and others embrace it. Those who embrace it will tell you that it's the most exhilarating experience of their lives, and with good reason. Dancing has been proven to relieve stress, increase physical flexibility, mental fortitude, and muscular endurance. The best part is that it's what you can do almost anytime, anywhere, for your own enjoyment! Those of you who already dance might ask yourselves, "I already know all this, so why do I need to learn about it?" Well, you don't. Because it's supposed to be a reminder. A reminder to keep going when the going gets tough. When you're close to those last few moves and something in your brain tells you to give up, tell yourself that you were born to dance. Tell yourself it's human nature! Tell yourself to embrace your love for dance, and overcome that hardship. And for those who haven't started to dance, don't be afraid to start. You are about to enter a whole new side of yourself you never thought possible, and you will not regret it.

Ron Clark, principal of Ron Clark Academy based out of Atlanta, is the man behind the “Bet You Can’t Do It Like Me” viral dance video which shows him dancing alongside his students. While it is unusual for teachers and administrators to participate in these types of activities with students, Ron believes differently. Clark stresses the importance of teachers that “build bonds with their students and find out things they love,” and then try to incorporate that into their classrooms. купить ЛЁД Гатчина Watch the story of this very inspiring educator!
