Back after a long absence, well I have been kind of busy with the boomerangs of life’s foibles.
So I posted a status which reads:
It’s been a while since I ruminated on dance so here goes.
Dancing is a form of soul expression and a language that speaks to the universal spirit. It’s is life, it is spirit, it is sensuality it is fun.
Now Tango, Salsa and many others are latin based sensual dances, in order to express them fully you have to let go of inhibitions, restraint and so many things.
So Bish please, if you are so caught up in what people think of you and how you look then step away from the floor and let the people who feel it do it and show you how.
Note: Very few in this town have it. They might be technically proficient but there dancing has no duende, no spirit, no life, all I see is people moving but no soul. Kind of reflects our society where people are alive no living though.
So the lesson is let go of yourself and let the beat control your body.
Be profoundly uncaring of what society thinks.
Set yourself free (with the caveat that with freedom comes a certain amount of responsibility). “
I see people dancing and counting their steps, and I am not impressed, I see people moving and they do not feel the beat nor the Rhythme (I like spelling it like that mind your own business).
Why do you go to dance. For some dudes it’s their only way of getting in touch with the fairer sex, and to try and get to know girls and that is a commendable thing (and then there’s the darker side of that but that is another conversation for another time). I like that the “stigma” of dance has been abolished and more and more are getting into it, it is also a great leveller no relegated to middle-class and upwards, it is all across the board.
Nothing negative for now, but wait for it I can ruminate on that too.
