Everyone has a different favorite dance. Why?

Posted by Jeravae Christensen on

During some morning chit chat in the office, I asked Jasmine what her favorite dance is...and it got me thinking, "why does everyone have a different favorite dance?"  The obvious answer is that different dances speak to people differently based on their personality types.  For example: my favorite dance is Bolero.  I love the passion and romance of the dance, but I also love the control and compulsory technique that's required to do the dance well.  Those two things speak to me as an ex ballerina and as someone who loves the drama of an artistic personality.

A hurricane can't keep a good dog down.

We're in Asheville this weekend, at the Asheville Dance Classic, and we can't believe how many dancers are competing, even after Hurricane Flo has waltzed her way across the state of North Carolina.  It's an inspiring thing to see. It may be due to the fact that the organizers of this event are generously donating 100% of all mambo single dance entry fees to the Asheville Humane Society.  It's heartwarming to know our organizers are looking out for the local animals.  Thank you for allowing us to be part of such an inspiring and uplifting competition. For more information, you can...
