Hi, my name is Jordan I’m a Belly Dance instructor with the Global Dance Collective, based in Townsville and I really love dancing.
Not only do I love it, but I believe in it. In the good it can do and its essential job of making the body a part of mind and part of storytelling. So here are four of my favourite things about dancing:
- You can’t get it wrong. It is your skeleton, your meat and electricity and enthusiasm and so how can you really stuff up swinging that around a room?
- It feels incredible. Particularly on the days when you hit that sweet spot between I-don’t-give-a-fig and wow-am-I-a-bird-? It sets my endocrine and nervous systems on fire and leaves me with a post-boogie buzz.
- It’s language. As a relatively awkward creature, communicating to others through dance really takes a load off the social proverbial.
- It improves your brain. Dancing improves your memory, your ability to learn other, unrelated new skills and staves off dementia. If like me, your brain is a pretty important part of you, then perhaps a little preservation dancing is on the cards for you.
So those are some things I like about dance and I would love to hear four things you love about dance, or things you don’t like about dance or things that stop you from hitting a wedding at a dancefloor.
