OF ALL THE ARTS, NONE REMAIN AS ROOTED IN RITUAL AS DANCE.RITUAL, BY DEFINITION, IS A PURELY PARTICIPATIONAL ACTIVITY
NOT DESIGNED TO BE LOOKED AT BY DETACHED SPECTATORS.To dance means to be new, to be fresh at every moment,
As though one had just issued from the hand of GodDancing is a relatively safe form of intoxication.The dance is one of the many human experiences which cannot be suppressed. Dancing has existed at all times, and among all peoples and races. The dance is a form of expression given to man just as speech, philosophy, painting or music.The dance, like every other artistic expression, presupposes a heightened, increased life response.As our life becomes more and more artificial and we live more and more at second hand, we feel a growing need for that direct contact with life which is felt in dance.
