See the music, hear the dance. George Balanchine
Wishing you a wonderful, Happy International Dance Day! "Dance is nature. Listen to your heart, it dances with its own rhythm. The biggest thing that dance and music does to you is help attain balance between your mind and soul." – Pandit Birju Maharaj #internationaldanceday #dancewithpassion #bellavitadance
"Rumba" is from the Spanish word rumbear, meaning to have a party or a good time. It's the slowest of the Latin dances and has its roots in religious and ceremonial African dances.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain. - Vivian Greene
