Dancing is the answer to the question of the body.
When I say dancing, I’m not referring to any particular form, or tradition. I’m not talking about a particular skill level. When I say dancing, I mean moving your body to a rhythm. This can be to a song, in the traditional sense. But it can also be to the snapping of your fingers, to the howling of the wind, or to the beating heart of your partner. The effect is the same. Your mind is using your body to tune into the vibrations of the world around you. To flow with the literal rhythm of the world.
Our bodies pose a question to us, by the mere fact of their existence. What do I do with this? How can I connect with this body in a way that makes sense to me? The answer can be simpler than you might have expected: move it to the rhythm of your life. Rhythmic movement is the fundamental response to the body’s inquiry.
