Dance is not just a gracious, respectable, and holy Art form. It is worship to Lord Nataraja –the ultimate God of Dance. In my opinion, Dance is the most powerful medium of expression. Dance has the ability to express every emotion and feeling existing in every human-being of this world. Dance has the ability to express every human emotion without talking or yelling or shouting. Dance can enable the entire body to express, without talking –without the usage of words.
Those who are unable to express themselves in a conversation or while talking or discussing with others can use the medium of dance to express their frustration, anger, disappointment, or even positive emotions like Love and support. They can express their concern for a person through the medium of Dance. These individuals who are not comfortable in openly expressing their emotions or venting out their feelings to someone, experience freedom after dancing, since Dance is a platform for these individuals to express their feelings. Dance comes to the rescue of such individuals who cannot openly express their feelings. Thus Dancing gives Freedom to these individuals by bestowing upon them the power to release their bottled-up feelings.
If circumstances force an individual to not express his opinions , his feelings and his emotions to others, then he can release his bottled-up feelings or even purge out the trauma from within, through the medium of dance, obviously by dancing, although nobody is watching him dance. This proves that Dancing has the power to heal your inner wounds which are the result of your traumas and your bad experiences. Dance is therapeutic.
Dance has the ability to narrate stories effectively. Every Dance form has the power to spread value education or instill the right moral values in children and adults, which they can achieve by expressing the importance of moral values either through stories or through songs. Dance has the ability to beautifully narrate great epics like the Mahabharat and the Ramayan. If I have to summarize this paragraph, then I can say that Dance has the ability to teach Value education or Moral science effectively, and this should be implemented in every school.
Dance gives you freedom from body aches, stiff muscles, stiff posture, and excessive weight. In addition, Dance adds grace to your body movements and posture. Dancing is a fantastic hobby that involves the entire body and of course, this hobby engages the mind in a positive way. From my personal experience, I want to convey to people that Dance is not less than Meditation and Yoga. Dance has the power to instill pure happiness and radiant energy in an individual. It has the power to reduce Depression in individuals, therefore Dance not only makes you physically fit, but it also makes your mind fit, and hence Dance is a SUPERPOWER. My message to everyone is KEEP DANCING irrespective of whether you have learned Classical dance or any other dance form, because Dance empowers you with the right spirit and attitude.
