Dance refocuses our focusing mind on very basic existence – time, space, gravity open up to creativity. This seems to me a reminder of nature, of our natures, and as such it provides a service to us in our physical doldrums.  It’s a wake up call to deadened urbanites, a stimulus to work-habituated bodies, a promise to developing children…  Dance will remind them of their feet, their spines, their reach.  I think it’s good for us.
