“Deevanation: Our Language: Dawn Avery and Her Dancing Deevas”: a heuristic collaboration of words inspired by someone who challenged herself through dancing. “Deevanation: Our Language: Dawn Avery and Her Dancing Deevas” is the creation of published author Sharon R. Williams, a dancer who challenged herself with African jazz during her teenage years until college, and later on fell in love with tap. Soul line dancing has a spirit she likes because of its variety of swag, its movement of sway, and its ease of accomplishment.

Williams writes, “Whispers...’She’s in a world of her own,’ ‘I love to watch her dance,’ ‘She’s so smooth.’ What defines ones movement in dance? Does a pointed toe or an elongated reach with a suggested outreached hand provide the perfect sway?

“In youth, movement isn’t calculated, it happens. As we develop and learn balance, as we find control and define release, we gain confidence. Music is a compliment which we all innately feel. Now whether you have two right feet, two left, or are equally balanced, line dance is a welcoming event. Steps are repetitive, levels range from beginner to advanced, and the dance floor generally holds enough people to hide all flaws or as we say in the line dance community, ‘fake it until you make it!’

“‘Deevanation: Our Language’ is a loving collaboration of words, defined through the inspirational line dance group, Dawn’s Dancin’ Deevas. I met Dawn Avery and Angela Lott Williams in 2011. I came with a background in dance but I never expected to discover such an extensive underground of fun, excitement, socialization, friendship, and personal growth. My walk as a Deeva has escalated my glide across the dance floor to radiating enjoyment. It’s more than a dance. It’s a nation, y’all!”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Sharon R. Williams’s new book is an edifying compendium of the words being used by the dancers on the dance floor. This informative handbook not only informs the readers but also aims to inspire them as this book is made out of love by the author who found herself through dancing.
