Perhaps we can and should be able to dance to music just about anytime and anywhere. Some people may think we are nuts anyway. We have often seen people with a wire in their ear, moving inadvertently to the music they hear. For many people the body hears the music and wants to move to that rhythm. It should be pretty natural.
"A wise man can appear foolish in the company of fools."
"The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise" by Les Paul and Mary Ford.
However many people have learned in our "civilizations" to suppress this desire. The result is too many people have learned to enjoy hearing the music without moving to it. Witness the huge symphony orchestras that were developed in the 19th century. And the huge concerts that remain to this day. There are many that insert the plugs in their ears when they get up in the morning and take them off when they go to sleep at night. Music is a big part of their life but how much of it do they really hear?
Then somewhere along the line, there was the reasoning that men should not dance. But many men in all cultures have found a place with some nice music to dance to and they will dance. In many cultures it was a manly thing and not for women. The thinking among the people is changing although at the end of the last century there had been too much emphasis on the "spectator" end of it. And that is not dancing.
"Let Me Go, Lover" by Joan WeberHowever there is the “hype” among us, the exaggerated promotion or publicity to stimulate and excite the dancers to a special day or time of the month. There are clubs that use it half hearted and others that just don’t bother. We should put more emphasis on the use of it in an informative manner to entice others to join in the fun. The bigger the crowd (within reason) the more fun it can be.
