CJ Holm: What is Dance?






Three answers:

Dance is the process of translating interior forces into external vectors.

Dance is a single moment when the dancers move, the audience moves in response, and then its over and all that
remains is the echo of movement in the minds and bodies of the participants.

Dance is serious fun.
