Why Dance as a Philosophy?

 Why Dance as a Philosophy? For me, the practice of "movement" is an inward experience which allows me to extract ideas (existential or concrete) having some relevance to my existence and query of the "human condition". The practice of "performing and presentation", is for me, a medium of transformation, through which I can take extracted ideas from "movement practice" i.e. inward experience and transfer them to outward experience. You could say that this whole process -inward experience of movement practice and outward experience of presenting, is like taking a complete breathe. In this case... Dance is breathing, its perhaps the breathe of my soul.
