Why Dance?

July 4, 2011

I would like to introduce the Blog of Images Dance Company.  We are a dance company that performs at community and professional events such as the Orange County Fair and Tustin Street Fair as well as private celebrations such as weddings and birthday parties.  We promote dance as a healthy activity for everyone.

I asked our dancers to tell me why they dance and here are some of their responses:

  • Dance relieves stress. It is a fun way to exercise to stay fit and keep the body healthy (joel)
  • Dance is the only movement that makes me feel like I am somebody in this world whether alone or with family. It is dance that I love. (richard)
  • Dance is a great healthy and fun activity to keep kids off the streets. (deb)
  • Dance frees the soul to truly feel again. (gigi)
  • Dance gets me more aware of my body through movement with the music. It is a fun way to work all of my muscles. (christine)
  • Dance brings positive energy to the body (joel)
  • Dance can be adapted to almost any level of ability or disability. (christine)

Dance should be enjoyed by all. Do what you are physically able to and just listen to the music.
