What Is This A Picture Of?
I posed the question “why does dance matter to you?” to the followers of my other dance twitter account, @dancequote, and this is a visual representation of their responses.
What Is Why Dance Matters?
It is a movement to spread the word on why dance is a valuable artform and who it matters to. Join the movement here: whydancematters.org
Read more about the un-scientific manner on how I created this after the jump.
As we are coming up on National Dance Day (July 28, 2012), Nichelle at Dance Advantage has posted the question: “Why does dance matter to you?” In fact, she’s trying to start a whole movement (dance pun intended) of the online dance community to share Why Dance Matters. If you want to get involved, check it out at whydancematters.org, tweet #whydancematters to you or follow our Pinterest board (you know I love a good Pinterest board)!
So here’s why dance matters to me:
It’s my job.
But more than that, it’s my passion.
No, it’s still more than that… it’s who I am.
You would not be able to describe me without talking about dance.
It’s a link between my past and my present.
It’s what I do when my soul needs mending.
It’s the joy that I want to share with my students and friends.
It’s a universal expression of joy and love and emotions.
It has created a community of people in my life whom I love and who I feel like I’ve known my whole life (online and offline).
Dance is part of me.
