When Your Heart is Filled with Dance

My friend, Meredith, and I have a lot in common.

Having Fun with Paint
We both graduated from college with a degree in English education.  We both taught English abroad (she taught in Bolivia; I taught in Okinawa).  We both taught English in the North Carolina public school system for one year.  We both dropped out of education after completing that year and are both "gladly" repaying the state for our short-lived career choice.  And now we both work at the same company.

Another thing we have in common is our love for dance.  I love to dance, and so does Meredith.  If the right song comes on the radio, you could probably find us bopping to its beat.  But between the two of us, Meredith has the heart of a real dancer.  With formal training in ballet and in tap under her belt, her love for dance is reflected in her personality.  She doesn't skip a beat and has a  graceful presence.  (And on those rare occasions, you can even catch her leaping in front of my office window like a sprite ballerina.)

So to complement her bright and cheery personality, I decided to create this collage for her.  Dance is how she is able to express herself.  Art is how I am able to express myself.  Here the two are dancing together.
