This is a creative poem about one of my favorite places: the dance studio! I hope y’all enjoy and I hope my fellow dancers can relate.

The Studio of Happiness


You will hear 

a tip tap,

and you will hear

a clickety-clack. 


You will hear

a hundred stomps,

and you will hear

a hundred songs.


These aren’t just noises,


our white noises. 


The sweat trickling down our ears

will only emphasize

 the great cheer.


Tis the only sound

which we will hear 

in the pitch black darkness

as our work is put on display.


The sound of footsteps 

marching on the beat

of your panting heart

drowns away

with the applause.


If the lights blind you,

dare to look

at your moves

which have never been so clear.


Oh please, don’t you quit just now.

That hard work you’ve done will make you 

forever proud.


For you have worked as hard as many,

while the Studio of Happiness 

has never had 

quite as much fun.
