Dance has been an integral part of life for thousands of years. Here, you will find incredible dance quotes that will inspire you.

The term “dance” could mean a myriad of things. Dancing is a way of life and a form of expression which began way before civilization. Some say it is an art that allows people to express their emotions, thoughts, and experiences. It is also considered the medium through which our mind and body connect to music. All of these are factual ways they describe the act of dancing.

But, why do people dance? People dance for many different reasons. It can help people stay active, entertain others, socialize, and develop physical and creative skills. Whether you dance professionally, with good company, or in the comfort of your home, one thing is for certain— it will give you mental clarity.

In the book, Dancing Is the Best Medicine, Argentine Tango Dancers Julia Christensen and Dong-Seon Chang, writes “Dance is an antidote to stress, a way to combat negative emotions, an elixir for the body, mind, and brain.”

Did you know that the 29th of April is the annual international dance day? There is no better way to celebrate and express happiness than dancing. Imagine a party where there is no dancing, not much fun huh? Although people do not need to be happy to dance, in fact, we often feel happier and revitalize after dancing.

Dance is also a learned cultural practice. For instance, Salsa is a dance of Latin origin, Tango is a dance created in the Argentinean region of Rio de la Plata in the 19th century and Jazz dancing can be traced to African traditions that started in the seventeenth century.

And interestingly, some people find dancing to be embarrassing because they are not confident in their ability to “dance”. In actuality, there is no right way or wrong way to dance. Some moves may be off rhythm but never wrong and anyone can learn to be an excellent dancer if they put their mind to it.

If you need some dance motivation or want to motivate others, you’re in the right place!
