Music speaks to our soul, and dancing is how our soul speaks.
“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
Music has been a part of the human experience for at least 55,000 years, and has transcended every culture known to man. While the history of dancing might not be as easy to pin down, we can assume it swiftly followed the creation of tones, beats, and melodies.
“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent”
― Victor Hugo
Music invigorates us, calms us, makes us feel happy, gives us chills, and it can make us shed a tear or two. (Seriously, have you ever heard Pavarotti sing Nessun dorma?)
We are touched by the stirring sounds. And we dance. We move our bodies and flow into the rhythm.
Music and dance have been a way for us to communicate with each other for thousands of years. They bring us together- forging new bonds of friendship, and strengthening ones of old.
“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”
― Albert Einstein
The following video is from the Fubiz Facebook page. It shows the magical meeting of subway musicians in Paris, and very talented dancers. Together, they create moments of beauty, capable of inspiring every last one of us.
“The sacred sense of beyond, of timelessness, of a world which had an eternal value and the substance of which was divine had been given back to me today by this friend of mine who taught me dancing.”
― Hermann Hesse
Imagine what this world would be like if we all took the time to play music, or dance.
