Dancing is a natural human instinct. We've been doing it for a very long time. One and a half million years to be precise.
We have danced to attract a mate. We have danced as celebration, as prayer. We have danced to prepare for war and the hunt. We have danced for physical healing. And we have danced our traumas and emotional pain.
Around the same time that Descartes said, "I think, therefore I am," dance became less a daily-life-inspired, human-condition expression, and became entertainment. Then, depending on the culture, gender, or moral atmosphere of the time, we developed ideas about the "right way" to dance.
Twenty years ago I was privileged to dance with the founders of this fine organization, when they were affiliated with the 5Rhythms®. More recently, I received Therapy in Motion training from them through Open Floor International. Please visit their website if you'd like to learn more about their trainings and offerings. - Shelly
