It is said that ages ago sign language and line drawings were the only modes of communication for human beings, when verbal speaking was not even a distant thought. As man progressed at different levels so did his means of communication; vast cave paintings, stone carvings and drawings on rocks show man’s continuous efforts to progress and convey his thoughts and ideas.
Over a period of time evolution of man has brought out more lucid means of expressions. To reach the masses and touch their hearts music, dance & drama stand out as the most powerful and widely practiced modes for communication of thought, idea, feelings, tales, mythology, social movements and entertainment.
As an individual happiness, sorrow, anger, remorse, jubilation etc are all the emotions everybody goes through in life, and for those who dance and express, dance happens to be a movement towards liberation. To these individuals Dance not only helps find an expression for passion, to bring out suppressed emotions, it also comes as a mode of exercise to keep healthy and energised, to many it revives lost oomph.
Many physicians today prescribe dancing as one of the remedies for patients suffering from physical ailments like asthma, obesity and mental depression. On social level dance has for ages brought various cultures together, with exchange of thoughts and insights into the unknown traditions and cultures of rest of the world. Dance has been and will always be an instrument to entertain, entice, energise, emote and evolve.
