What is Dance? by Jen Stone

Dance is the organization of the body, mind and spirit through space. Sometimes it’s blurry, sometimes it’s perfectly clear. It’s always exerting. Dance is a love affair with kinetic energy, momentum and self expression. It is the language of the primal being; the human animal in its wildest beauty and its grounded simplicity. Dance is in time, in space, fleeting, unpredictable, alive and then gone. It lives only through a performer. Dance is dependent on whoever cares or dares to put it on. Without a committed performer the dance will die. Or never be born.

Jen Stone is a dancer, a teacher, and a Mom who lives in rural Virginia.
