Still I Rise by Maya Angelou

You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies,

You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?

Why are you beset with gloom? ‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just like hopes springing high,

Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken? Bowed head and lowered eyes? Shoulders falling down like teardrops, Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?

Don’t you take it awful hard ‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes,

You may kill me with your hatefulness,

But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you? Does it come as a surprise That I dance like I’ve got diamonds At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame

I rise Up from a past that’s rooted in pain I rise

I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,

Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear I rise Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear

I rise Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave.

I rise

I rise

DANCE IN THE NEW WORLD (Scheduled for April 2022)


MRS. TINA Legend Workout (House of Sephora)

***First, a legend must be present for this class to occur. Next...A high energy, low impact fitness class that incorporates aerobic exercise to improve fitness, cardiovascular health, flexibility and rhythm. For everyone’s safety we’re asking participants and instructors to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing of 10 feet during class. Wash your hands frequently and stay home if you’re sick We're asking everyone to do the following to help us stay safe, before and after vaccination: Stay home if you are sick Maintain at least 10 feet of physical distance between households Wear a face covering Wash your hands Additionally, we encourage participants to bring their own hand sanitizer to our classes. Programs may be modified, rescheduled or cancelled due to weather, health, or safety concerns.


Wear a mask Please... ***COVID-19 vaccine and the honor system When the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made its change for fully vaccinated people to ditch their masks, much of it was reliant on people being honest about their vaccination status. “You’re gonna be depending on people being honest enough to say whether they are vaccinated or not,” Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN when the CDC announced it changes. Quinton Lucas, the mayor of Kansas City, Missouri, told CNN he didn’t see the honor system working his city. “It creates these sort of challenges where, how does the store clerk check it? How does our health department actually enforce any rule at all?” Lucas said. “So, while I respect many of the jurisdictions that are trying to, I think, really have adherence to the CDC (guidance), it’s a challenge for us.” Why doesn’t the honor system always work? According to The Washington Post, the U.S. is too polarized to make it work. “That lack of trust, fueled by the ongoing politicization of the pandemic, tears at the fabric of a public health strategy built on the assumption that other people will do the right thing,” according to The Washington Post.

"BE YOURSELF, Everyone is already taken!"
You don't need a special place or special time to pray. You don't need to be in a special mood to pray. Praying is like breathing, - continuous, essential, life-giving - praying is the conversation with God you start with birth and continue into old age. Praying is your celebration of God, - everything you do, everything you think, everything you say is another word, another sentence of your prayer. We are ALL standing on shoulders that paved the way before us.  Negative thoughts and words show the lack of the 'God' in YOU!.
Thank God for the gift of movement everyday.

Tina, My thoughts on Fit Camp: JUST WHAT I NEEDED.
I had such a great time this weekend. I looked at the price tag before going, and was a little weary, but something told me it would all be worth it, and it was. It turned out to be a mental and physical release, and a great bonding experience. I thought a lot over the weekend - a lot of things are going on, and when I said "betrayal" on the bus survey, it's because that has been a feeling I've experienced a lot these days unfortunately - but sweating, working hard, laughing, and focusing on something else has put me at peace. And we had the perfect balance of work and "enjoying the amenities" which was so important. Also, the nutrition talk was great. Glad we had that discussion. It was fun getting to know other people on the trip. I see Rose and Connie every Friday, but I knew nothing about them. But after the morning walks, sharing meals, and horseback riding with them, I feel closer to them.
I didn't have any sort of huge discussion with either of them, sometimes you dont need words to get closer to people, just experiences. And Z - after the classes on Friday, I relaized, she is the girl I see every time I am Crowne, staking out her corner of the studio while we rehearse! Now she is not just that girl I have to avoid bumping into while I am dancing, lol. There really wouldn't be anything I'd change for the next time. One thing I'd like to be added to the agenda next time is a hike. I was really looking forward to hiking sometime over the weekend, that would have been awesome. I would keep the group the same size we were, even if that meant putting people on a wait list. Oh, maybe some more meditation could be added. The Yoga sessions were awesome and really relaxing so maybe we could throw some meditation in there too. And the food.....SOOOOO GOOOD. I haven't eaten like that in awhile, and now that I took my oath, I won't be stuffing my face with a second plate for a long time....lol. 
Thank you Tina! Kerri Ford
