Why Do You Dance?

December 18, 2014

With the end of the year comes celebration and reflection. It’s a time to give thanks for the good in your life, a time to rethink the not-so-good and a time to reaffirm why you do what you do. The Huffington Post gave 39 dancers from companies and schools around the country a simple task that echoes this spirit of the holidays: To complete the sentence “I dance because…”. The result of its #whyidance campaign is a visual celebration of portraits of dancers holding signs with their own handwritten answers. Some are sweet, some are emotional, some are sillybut all affirm that dance falls into “the good” category of each person’s life.
