Dance for Happiness
Dance for Happiness ,Students in an English Language Arts class had been reading.
writing and discussing the concept of happiness.
They said that their final piece took listening, re-listening and reworking the dance over several days. In the end, one dancer portrayed the individual and the other her conscious or inner voice. Furthermore, hoped that their dance would influence and impact others in showing that it is okay to embrace how you are truly feeling and that happiness is really about how you live your life – the good and the bad parts. They both described the creative process as fun but hard work. In advance said that dancing allowed them to self-express in a way that would not have been possible had they had to write a poem. They said it was the same amount of effort, if not more, to create the dance but they felt grateful that they didn’t have to sit down to write out their thoughts because they “don’t like sitting still.”
