DON`T FORGET TO DANCE...



''You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive.''

Merce Cunningham


... and maybe that's why dancing is one of the purest expressions of human spirit. You don't have to be a professional dancer to know that dancing gives you a new perspective to life. It's the art of movement and  visualisation of music. It's good for your body shape, it releases happy hormones and it's fun. 

Then why there is so little dancing? When you go to a club, you move, but you don't dance. Imagine dancing passionately your own choreography in the middle of a dance floor, it would be a spectacle. If you're good, people would think someone had paid you. If you're bad, they would think you're probably very drunk and pay you to stop. So that's how it is. You pay, you dance...

The point is, dancing gives us the feeling of freedom and a chance to connect. Too bad that something that comes so naturally to people has become so limited and strictly defined by a certain context. We have this amazing instrument we call body and most of us are not using its full potential.

 Unlock yourself to the rhythm of life. 

Whether at home or outside, don't forget to dance.


Staying Alive, 1983


“To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful.. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking” 

Agnes De Mille


Karen Elson by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia, April 2015


“Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.” 

 Martha Graham


Alexander Yakovlev, Dancers

“I don't want people who want to dance, I want people who have to dance. ” 

George Balanchine


by Vadim Stein

When we proudly embrace our passions, dancing becomes as natural as walking. 
When put in front of other people's expectations, without being an attempt to impress anybody, dancing becomes the most liberating expression of the true self.

That's why dancing is a true synonym for freedom.



-What does it feel like when you’re dancing?
-Don’t know. Sorta feels good. Sorta stiff and that, but once I get going… then I like, forget everything. And… sorta disappear. Sorta disappear. Like I feel a change in my whole body. And I’ve got this fire in my body. I’m just there. Flyin’ like a bird. Like electricity. Yeah, like electricity.


Billy Elliot, 2000
