"While I dance I cannot judge, I cannot hate, I cannot separate myself from life. I can only be joyful and whole. This is why I dance." - Hans Bos
Dance – it’s a creative outlet; a form of expression; it benefits the nervous system, the skeletal system, the circulatory system, and the muscular system; it can be used to educate or rehabilitate; and it’s a form of therapy. What if, for one moment in time, everyone in the world stopped what they were doing to celebrate everything that dance is and simply danced?
Ten years ago Beth Fein decided to try to accomplish just that and created dance anywhere®. She was searching for a way to make dance accessible to everyone, inspire creativity, and change people’s perspectives about art.
This year’s celebration of dance will take place on Friday, March 28, 2014, at noon in California, which is 3:00 PM in New York City. People interested in participating can check out the dance anywhere® website to determine what time that would be in their locations. There is nothing formal about this venture. It does not require fancy choreography or professional dancers. It simply requires that some people gather and celebrate everything that dance has to offer by simply moving for a short period of time.
For more information or to enroll as a participating group, visit the website (www.danceanywhere.org) , watch the video from last year’s event, help spread the word, and join in the dance on March 28.
