Leap of Faith

We make it look easy,
dancers always do.
Even out here
on the heath
performance is all.
The rest is hidden
behind the scenes
usually in the sweaty studio.
It took a leap of faith to carry on
working alone month after month
with no prospect of performance,
of audience,
of applause
of income.
But we’re out now
out in the sun
jumping for joy
leaping with faith
ready to go again.
