The Essence of Dance

"On many an occasion when I am dancing, I have felt touched by something sacred. In those moments, I felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists" - Michael Jackson.

Dance needs no explanation, but only a few can master its wide range of styles. However, there is more to it than putting an impressive show. Dance is a means of expression; it is a profession but also a passion. It is an art form that helps people express and communicate with the help of body movements. While it is a key element of performing arts and culture, dance is also a part of life.
