Comments18/12/2016 #17 Savvy Raj#12 @Ella de Jong Thank you for your passionate sharing of the trailer link of one of my favourite true life stories on film Take the lead So grateful to meet like minded souls in this journey of exploration of dance applications. Special mention here to you dear @ @Sara Jacobovici and @ @Deb 🐝 Helfrich for these enriching shares and reflections.The beauty of this beBee platform is the powerful confluence it establishes in the sharing of thoughts and reflections. A confluence that is strengthened in exchange of ideas often demonstrated by creative ideas buzzing in the sharing.
Essentially, the idea of sharing social skills through art of dance where it often never reaches can make a huge positive difference. This is where dancing moves beyond performances and touches hearts and empowers lives.18/12/2016 #16 Paul Walters@Savvy Raj did you know that bees dance. Yup , its true !!! they do dance called the 'waggle' which at the end both fly off in different directions , the one having told the other where the sweetest nectar is to be found. So dancing is communication is it not? when we meet you will have to teach me how to dance !!!17/12/2016 #14 Sara Jacobovici#12 You definitely have an important contribution to make on beBee @Ella de Jong! So glad you came to that realization. I am not surprised it happened on @Savvy Raj's buzz. Thanks for the link. I did see the movie and liked it very much; yes Antonio was good and so were the rest of the actors/dancers, but also because it was based on a true story. Looking forward to more exchanges Ella.17/12/2016 #12 Ella de JongAhh, I'm so glad I spotted this post!! I am in doubt about my contribution on beBee. Perhaps now I've found my direction :-) Glad @Sara Jacobovicicommented and @Deb 🐝 Helfrich send her a link :-)
I am looking at the CD "Take the lead" lying on my table. I'm such a fan of this (real) story. Dancing and empowering troubled youngsters, such a great combination!! Here is the link on youtube (trailer): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yWRRvTBUz4 .
And yess: Antonio is also great :-)17/12/2016 #8 Savvy RajYes indeed !!! @Deb 🐝 Helfrich Art blends in beautifully as a movement for change And thank you for sharing what is trending there ... what you mention is hugely relevant as a reference ... every effort at creative expression opens up integration possibilities like never before, with a choice to merge and create platforms for positive change. Your choice of 'freeform groove' sounds like a great idea👍!17/12/2016 #7 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#5 That is an interesting & synchronous question, @Savvy Raj. As I was perusing your website and the names of the difference kinds of dances, I wondered what I would call the sort of dance I would like to learn. Maybe 'freeform groove' As to what is going on in the Seattle dance scene, I am not the best reference.
ALTHOUGH - we do have PAINT-DANCE gatherings that many of my Artist's Way cohorts participate in, I haven't yet got the timing right, but I am eager to participate. I see from the site the movement has grown. You and @Sara Jacobovici might find this interesting:

Thank you @Sara Jacobovici for your heartfelt wishes as well as for sharing her sensitive reflections here .To care to visualize a movement in the moment is a creative endeavour that is after all so much about honing the senses to be alive to bring a breath of life to this now.16/12/2016 #5 Savvy Raj#2 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich
So glad you mention this apect of listening deeply . Dance to me has a lot to do with developing the skill of non verbal communication &empathic awareness. So happy to note this resonates with you so deeply . ALL HAPPENS IN THE SYNCHRONICITY OF INTENTIONS !!! Heres to some great intentions in harmony for one & all ! May I also ask what are the dances most loved and danced nowadays under your piece of the sky ? Would be nice to know!16/12/2016 #4 Savvy Raj#1 @Dean Owen Appreciate your sharing a bit about your dancing family back in England ... and also interesting to note your tango history as well! My involvement with dancing to cut a long story short begins with my dear father who was then serving in the IAF in the 60s ...and teaching the ten dances to the interested learners who were often colleagues ..I grew up literally dancing in my fathers arms and now he is nearing 80 and still gets all ready to swing and sway . He often speaks of the dances then in the 60s with deep passion and perhaps it was destiny I was drawn into dance education, teaching and sharing social dance skills after a few years in the corporate world.
Way beyond any dance forms and styles , to dance to me is to sense the connectedness to life in this now. Am pretty sure you would agree! 😊 Lets Keep Dancing to Life!16/12/2016 #3 Sara JacoboviciLove your post @Savvy Raj and proud to see you in action! Continued success. thought you may enjoy this quote by Twyla Tharpe: "What I do remember is visualization of the sound of music, seeing bodies in movement in relation to how music sounded, because my mother practiced at the keyboard a lot and I also went to her lessons. As a two year old, three year old I remember seeing things in movement."16/12/2016 #2 Deb 🐝 Helfrich"Most importantly dancing lessons gradually can develop the art of listening beyond the sound of the music and observing beyond the obvious steps and patterns and fine tune your intutive understanding and responses" This is both a unique perspective, @Savvy Raj, and one that makes common sense.
Dance is the language of listening and observing just as crucially as it is the art of moving.
I happened to be enjoying one of my current movement inducing songs as I found this post, it has been a day of great timing with all my scroll partners on beBee.16/12/2016 #1 Dean OwenLet me dust off my salsa shoes.... Actually I have quite a few of my family in England who take dancing very seriously often doing the ballroom dance competition circuit (including Brighton). True enough, they are extremely fit and have aged well compared to lazy Dean. I did tango for a while, but switched to salsa as it is easy to find a partner for salsa and bachata. I see from your website you teach salsa! 💃🏻
