Connecting through movement

Putting on music and dancing is a simple thing I can do to be present. It’s a simple thing I can do to get out of my head and into my body. I think way too much and in general think we as a society do too. That’s what I love about dance. It connects me to my soul, to the universe and to others. It’s free, it’s experiential and it’s a form of play where I find humility, balance and peace.

I love dancing and always have since I was a kid. I think most kids enjoy dancing. It seems very primitive and ancient. One of my dance teachers, Charemaine Seet, said it’s the first art form.

As I got older I loved parties for the love of dancing. It’s a place where you can meet people from all walks of life and cut through the barriers and get right to the point. You get to touch a person’s soul and they yours as you get to communicate and talk with your bodies, expressing yourself so deeply and intuitively it’s faster and almost instantaneous. I think that’s why I love dancing for hours and it seems that lots of other people too, because dance energises. It gives and multiplies and creates. It’s abundant, like a candle. With one candle you can light another 1000 candles and the flame of the first candle doesn’t go out.

The universe is abundant, and dance acts in the same way. It gives to all of us when we move together or even by ourselves as we connect with the spirit of the universe and the deeper parts of ourselves if we allow it.
