The popular notion to ‘dance like no one’s watching’, turning up our favorite tune and closing the door, is more or less the same as ecstatic dance. When we allow our bodies to move and create shapes and forms, sometimes beautiful ones, and other times choppy ones, we allow a sense of freedom to take over. We can forget about any worries, concerns, trying to look good, and simply express ourselves through dance.
Do you love to dance? Or are you a ‘I can’t dance’ person? Neither is right or wrong. But if you are an ‘I can’t dance’ person, I raise the challenge to you that you can!! Anyone in a body can. Even a Quadriplegic can dance. The idea is not to look pretty or cool, but instead to allow your body the gift to move.
