Dancing with Class is wrapping up a successful Fall Season, having recently completed our Fall Dance-Off for CPS schools as well as our Chicago Park District program. At each event, I reminded students that there are wonderful gifts they can give any time they like that don't cost a thing. Namely, compliments to other people and the joy of sharing a dance. When reminded to do so, students take the challenge of "paying a compliment to someone they do not know" very seriously. A young boy came up to me after an event last night to report on the number of compliments he had paid to others that evening. He was joyful to share this news. He was experiencing what the joy of giving is all about. By doing something nice for someone else, he was also giving a gift to himself. Spread the joy this holiday season!
