Dance Room Word Art

Another easy piece of art you can incorporate into your dance room decor is word art. The easiest way is just to print something and frame it, though you could pen or paint it yourself if you have an artistic flair. There are lots of ideas you could use, here are some to inspire you!

 Use a word that inspires you like strength, courage, perserverance, joy, etc. Copy and paste the definition and alter as you like - varying the size, font, etc. I have used the word tribe below as an example.


any aggregate of people
by ties of descent from common ancestor, 
of customs and traditions,
adherence to the same leaders, etc.

 This is a great website. Type in the words you select and then adjust the colour, layout and font as you desire. One tip: the more you type the same word, the bigger it will appear in the final design. For instance in the wordle I created below, I typed dance six times. 

  Print out one word, phrase or quote in a font and design you like and frame it. You could use a reminder word like smile or posture, or a joyful word. You could use a long poem about dance or a copy of the ATS Tribal Code. Here are some quotes and phrases too:

When all else fails... dance.

"Life is a mystery, dance with mastery, walk with grace, live in beauty, be what you believe." Myra Krien

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. – Alan Watts

What is dance but a dream in motion?

Dancing frees the spirit, clears the mind, and cleanses the soul.

To dance an ancient movement in a modern era is to defy time and connect us all in spirit.

If the day is dark, dance to shine. If the day is sad, dance to smile. If the day is dead, dance to feel alive again.

Dance when you can, tomorrow isn’t promised.

A day I don't dance is a day I don't live.

When we dance, the goddess within embodies our feeble flesh- free, alive & full of peace, she strengthens us to believe in our potential - her.
