We are all searching for connection. Every social dancer is after that mysterious out-of-body, dreamlike, timeless experience with another person when the bodies move in perfect harmony with the music. This is because our bodies are driven by the desire to connect with other bodies, to be touched in meaningful ways.
It liberates you. Dancing is a form of self-expression. When you freely move your body or dance for hours, you feel liberated. You don’t censor your body and there is no social pressure to worry about. It can also be a form of meditation – you can actually lose yourself in a dance or in a song and your focus becomes mainly on your body and your movement.
