I have often thought that I ought to write a blog post "100 reasons why I love to dance" (not that I actually blog) because my relationship with dance - and I do actually consider it arelationship that is complex and murky similar to an interpersonal relationship - is hard for me to understand and quantify. Do I enjoy mastering technique? Yes Do I dance to feel the music? Yes Does close embrace make it easier to execute certain steps? Yes Do I like dancing when I look good and other people watch and compliment me? Yes Do I dance as a form of cardio exercise? Not really. I go jogging for this purpose. . I vehemently disagree! I find great beauty in the finely tuned lead-follow connection. It is like the beauty of physics and mechanics. Precise and powerful. I do not think it is possible to hold another person close and not experience some feelings.
