THE EMOTIONS ARE STIRRED AND TAKE FORM IN WORDS.

IF SIGHS ARE NOT ENOUGH, WE SING THEM.
IF SINGING IS NOT ENOUGH, THEN UNCONSCIOUSLY
OUR HANDS DANCE THEM AND OUR FEET TAP THEM.”
DANCE IS A POWERFUL EXPRESSION.
IT SPEAKS TO EARTH AND HEAVEN.

DANCE SPEAKS OF THE INTANGIBLE, YET REVEALS THE STATE OF MIND OF A PERSON AND
THE TEMPERAMENTS AND CHARACTERS OF A PEOPLE.
