World Dance Day

Dance is one of the artistic expressions of an individual. There are various types of dance forms and these vary with the different regions of the world. Dance is used to tell stories or explore myths and legends. It is also a reflection of the culture of the people living in a particular region. With the eventual mix of cultures over time we now see a fusion of different dance forms.

Dance is sometimes a spontaneous expression of happiness- we often ‘dance with joy’. It is sometimes a manifestation of disease. A good example is St. Vitus’ Dance- a form of rheumatic chorea.

The propensity or love or desire for dancing and even aversion to dancing could be a clue that a patient gives to the homeopath and guides him to the correct medicine.

    very true dance is the best form of expression and all the emotions especially happiness can be best expressed in the form of dancing. The commonest example v can watch every one doing that when India wins the match and all the cricket lovers express their happiness in the form of dancing.I personally feel that dance is also a very good stressbuster. The therapeutics on dance are also awesome.
