According to Wikipedia, “Dance is a type of art that generally involves movement of the body, often rhythmic and to music. It is performed in many cultures as a form of emotional expression, social interaction, or exercise, in a spiritual or performance setting, and is sometimes used to express ideas or tell a story”. But personally speaking, I don’t think dance needs any definition. Dance is the language of the soul. Dance is the poetry of poets. Dance is the expression of the artists. Dance is the blanket we shovel around when we are lost around. Dance is that form of love whose strings are deeply attached to us. Dance makes us prance like a child again. Dance makes us relive the divine moments. Dance makes us feel the beauty of life. Dance mends broken hearts. What more do we need?
Although I am an amateur in the picture perfect frame of dance, still there are many reasons I still am attached to dance.
