Dance is a performing art form consisting of purposefully selected sequences of human movement. This movement has aesthetic and symbolic value, and is acknowledged as dance by performers and observers within a particular culture. Dance can be categorized and described by its choreography, by its repertoire of movements, or by its historical period or place of origin.

I think the most important part in dancing is remembering where you came from, how you started and how good you wanted to see yourself be. Dancing is nothing more than a beautiful art which "enables you to find yourself and lose yourself at the same time".

I danced for about 17 years. As a kid, ballet was the worst and jazz/hip hop was the coolest thing you could do. As I got older, I realized how ballet helps with discipline while also providing a real escape for me despite whatever was going on outside the dance classroom. It took time and a lot of effort to build the technique that is ballet. I miss it greatly, especially pointe which is like the honors clas of ballet lol

Misty Copeland was promoted to principal dancer with the American Ballet Theater, a first for African American women. In the midst of all the claims that we are not in a post racial society, Copeland's achievement is most definitely a silver lining. And so despite some critical clams that she was promoted because of all the publicity and the pressure to prove racism wrong, or that people are celebrating this event for the wrong reason (for breaking the racial barrier rather than Copeland's personal achievement), congratulations. Regardless of how you view it, this is still an accomplishment in its rawest form.
