This winter has definitely been kinder to many of us in Canada (so far). Even though the weather can be strange and the trends can be worrisome, I have been hearing the relief, if not giddiness, in conversations about this warmer winter! I have heard many say that January went by fast, so maybe January was less “blue”? I think it might be worth breaking out in song or dance about! Whatever the reason or excuse, it might be good for us to do! I recently read: Landmark study measures healthy dose of the arts. It lists many ways that one can engage with the arts including (and simply): “Maybe it’s listening to 20 minutes of your favourite music on the way to work or doing a colouring book in your lunch hour or if you have the money going to the theatre.” Good to know that it may not be as hard to include into a day as one might think!
For further inspiration, I searched for some of my favourite dancing and singing “break out” scenes from movies:
I haven’t seen the new Peanuts movie yet, but for a start:
How about a boogie from Billy Elliot?:
How about a flash mob (before we called them that?):
And who can’t at least smile at “Little Miss Sunshine’s” dance? Olive’s family’s reaction and support is one of my favourite scenes as well:
Breakfast Club style?
Breaking out in song might be more my style. (Check out the benefits of singing in a choir here.)
A few of my favourites:
It’s not perfect in the movies either, so as you wish.. 🙂
Feel free to share your favourite inspirational “break out” example too.
