For parents, staff and students alike,
summer happened along as a much needed break,
from the hustle and bustle of class upon class,
Time to catch a breath and let stress and strain pass.

But for me somethings missing and deep down inside
I feel hollow and empty, as if cast aside.
Bereft of song and dance, days are spent idle and mute,
while I cling to visions of next dance season, my parachute.

I can't really complain, for a few friends came to visit,
their spins and leaps sweeping away the doldrums for scant minutes
but as July started to wane, visitors were far between and few,
pangs of emptiness spanned into eons of solitude anew.

And just when I feel I can't take the stillness any more,
comes the open and shut, open and shut of the studio door.
The steady cadence of feet on the stairs,
plays a song to my soul and flagging spirits flare.

The tonic I’ve been waiting for finally arrives
not a moment too soon, the electricity brings me to life.
Kindred spirits assemble in studios and halls,
contagious energy surges across floors, racing up walls.

Silence is banished by the din of excited voices and laughter
of friends reuniting; a refrain I could listen to ever after.
It's a wildfire of passion, desire and reason.
how my heart swoons, it's time for another dance season!
