Zen of Waltz 2005 Photos

While I dance I cannot judge, I cannot hate, I cannot separate myself from life.
I can only be joyful and whole.   That is why I dance. -- - Hans Bos
(from Billy Grant, Rome, GA contra dancer)

                

PRAISE OF THE DANCE   
Photos by Bob Bennett at Rhapsody Summerfest

I praise the dance, for it frees people from the heaviness of matter and binds the isolated to community.
I praise the dance, which demands everything: health and a clear spirit and a buoyant soul.
Dance is a transformation of space, of time, of people, who are in constant danger of becoming all brain, will, or feeling.
Dancing demands a whole person, one who is firmly anchored in the center of his life, who is not obsessed by lust for people and things and the demon of isolation in his own ego.
Dancing demands a freed person, one who vibrates with the equipoise of all his powers.
I praise the dance.
O man, learn to dance, or else the angels in heaven will not know what to do with you.
----------Saint Augustine (A.D. 354 ... 430)
