VIVARTANA – Dance Transforms by Rama Vaidyanathan and Group
Dance transforms my pulse to pace with rhythm And I become one with rhythm
Dance transforms the space around me And I become one with space
Dance transforms my body from still to motion And I become one with movement
Dance transforms my soul from singular to plural And I become one with the world
Dance is a latent gift within each human being and undoubtedly it is a multilayered powerhouse of transformation. Not only does it transform us physically, emotionally, spiritually and culturally, it also has the capacity to touch the world and eventually to change or transform it. It alters the visual physical space around the dancer, brings about a change in the relation between the Dancer and the Dance and finally awards a life-changing experience to anyone and everyone who comes into contact with it.
