Dancing is a form of expression that brings joy to both those performing it and those watching it being performed.
Dance routines are sequence of bodily movements that could be either improvised or purpsefuly planned.
In African settings, dances moves were a form of communication, with each move made to signal a particular message.
That is still the same with the contemporary afro dance that Ghanaian icons such as Dancegod Lloyd, Yoofi Greene, Mickie Flex and others are known for.
It is a celebration of culture, showcasing of love manifested through strength, agility and good old flare to move to the rhythm of a beat.
April 29 was the International Dance Day with the theme “Purpose of dance”. It was set to celebrate the art form that helps people express themselves without saying a word.
This day was initially started by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute (ITI) which is the main partner of the branch of performing arts of UNESCO.
The date is chosen to honour the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre, who is known as the creator of modern ballet.
To this end, we have decided to celebrate 7 black people, including Ghanaians, being awesome on the dance floor.
Dance, is a universal language and it permeate culture and political boundaries.
Today, Yoofi is teaching dance in China. Dancegod Lloyd is being featured in Beyonce music videos among others.
Irrespective of who you are and how uncoordinated you are on the dance floor, dance still brings joy in a way that only this art form can pull off.
