There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you in action, and because there is one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.

Flamenco in Madrid, Spain

The human body is beautiful. When music accompanies the different movements of the body, it becomes an art. But not all bodily movements constitute a dance form. There is a fine line between acrobatics and dance. Although dance requires physical fitness, but that is not all. It requires emotions, feelings and an understanding of the rhythms from within. It is an art where one can express a story, a sentiment a mood and an imagery in a small time frame. Dance is an ever evolving world of creativity.

Turkish belly dance.

I was mesmerized by the sensuous and the gracious belly dance in Turkey. This dance is really a celebration of femininity. It is playful and lively. Though personally, I would prefer a background music that is a bit different!

The nice thing about dance is that any new idea can be implemented to create something refreshing. I guess that’s the beauty of art and creation and satisfaction of an artist and creator.

Whenever I complete writing a blog post, I feel wonderful. I live those travel moments once again. I recollect those moments and get a chance to introspect in detail. Sharing of my experiences and realizations with you all is immensely satisfying. I also love reading your comments. It would be lovely if you share your feelings and thoughts about my posts, the kind of subjects I choose to write, the way I represent through photographs and videos and so on..

In my next post, I will tune in to the rhythm of Flamenco of Spain. How different is their music and dance? We will explore!
