The dancer faces straight on self-evaluation of their proficiency and also their ability to live out deep emotions. They must face up to their vulnerable and soft sides as well as their determination and powerful nature. It is from this ability to self evaluate that comes the courage and commitment to reach excellence.
Dance is the most pleasureable way to take on personal challenges of communication and decision making. Changes of mindset and ways of taking action are a given with dance. And dance puts the practice on the ground in ways that are a great addition to talking and body therapies.
Dance, unlike other athletic activity, connects not only the brain with muscle and nerve, but also connects to feelings, the imagination, and the shared hard wired elements with music such as rhythm, tempo, and phrasing.
