Storytelling is a very old human skill that gives us an evolutionary advantage. If you can tell young people how you kill an emu, acted out in song or dance, or that Uncle George was eaten by a croc over there, don’t go there to swim, then those young people don’t have to find out by trial and error.
My favorite workouts are the ones that don’t feel like I’m working out! So, dance is a big one. Another is any kind of isolated moves, like ballet moves. Anything that works the glutes and legs – sign me up! And I like to blast the music. I have to get lost in the music. That helps.
The real message of the Dance opens up the vistas of life to all who have the urge to express beauty with no other instrument than their own bodies, with no apparatus and no dependence on anything other than space.
