#WomenAtWork – A dancer
I am a dancer.
with a degree in business management, I joined the rat race for an year.
I left all that to choose a career in movement art.
Contemporary, Kalari Payattu, Ballet, Bharatnatyam, Chau and Kathak stole my heart.
I am studying and I also perform,
My students learn from me the art-form.
This dancing career happened by chance,
and I am glad it is helping me advance.
Confused when I was in life, I took up auditions,
I never knew this will be a great addition.
Dancing helps the introvert in me share,
this form of expression is like a breath of fresh air.
It began with trusting my voice,
and now it is shaping my career and about owning my choice.
Social stigma still surrounds this profession,
people need to change their perception.
When you take risks, you may fail
but just one win will help you sail.
Go ahead and set yourself free,
Do what you want and happiness you will see.
My name is Pooja Sabarinath and I am a dancer.
Today is edition #15 of #WomenAtWork, a photo feature on this blog. If you are interested in participating, please read the inaugural post and join by adding your post below. I would love to see your take on the tag.
Sometimes, it is very hard to bucket an artist and I had a tough time thinking about what profession do I associate Pooja with. She is a movement artist and a teacher. She is a dancer and then she also enjoys the contemporary dance form. For the sake of this post and the fact that Pooja earns her scholarship from being a performer, I am taking the liberty to call her a dancer. I met Pooja (virtually) through a friend AJ and over the emails I exchanged with Pooja, I found her to be a simple and vivacious person.
Pooja – Thank you for inspiring all of us.
How to link?
- You can only join with a blog post.
- It would be great to see a picture of a woman at work and a few words about her. If you cannot share a picture, you can share a picture of her workspace. With a real picture, I would still be able to call this a photo post.
