Because it’s FUN
Yes. To dance just for the sheer joy of it. Just for the extreme delight and pleasure of moving your body. Just because it feels good. Kids understand these concepts with no questions and no problems. Grown-ups are the ones who usually struggle with the fun factor. For most young children, dancing doesn’t have to have a reason attached to it in order to engage in it. Many adults, on the other hand, tend to need a socially-accepted event or situation in order to dance; a class, a wedding, a bar, a live concert, etc. They also tend to need other people (and enough of them) to be dancing so they feel they’ll be accepted. When you dance just for fun, feeling good is more important than looking good.
Because it’s CREATIVE
Spontaneity. Imagination. Possibility. Being creative isn’t a gift bestowed on but a few lucky folks. Creativity is inherent in us all. Whether or not you call yourself an artist, you are creative. Dance is moving art. When you dance to express your creativity, authenticity and playful behavior show up big time.
Because it’s HEALTHY
Dancing is great exercise. For strength and stamina. For flexibility and fitness. Dance is more than just a physical workout. It can be an emotional and spiritual experience as well. Reduce stress. Release tension. Rest the mind and let your body move the way it wants. When you dance for your health, your entire being benefits.
