How to cope with the pandemic as a dancer.
The more real and personal. Pandemic, it seems, has afforded career dancers a new lease on their art form. Staying healthy and productive at home is one of the best things a dancer can do for their career as stage performances take a backseat for sometimes. The internet is full of free concerts, and celebrated dancers and artists are beaming out art from their living rooms, making the experience so much more real and personal.
Dancing has always been a source of delight and ecstasy. Its a way to express joys, sorrows, and communicate emotions or a story with grace. As the pandemic has pressed on, people have found innovative ways to come together. There have been dances of gratitude, dances with masks, dances that connect, as a way of encouraging people to dance their blues away.
Learning about dance and watching it are the easiest things to do at home. Try a few of these pointers to get rid of your boredom during this pandemic:
Dance your way to good health and mental well-being.
Spare at least a minimum of 30 minutes or an hour for dancing no matter how busy you are. It not only keeps you fit but also helps you rejuvenate from the whole day's stress. Dance and good health are closely associated. Dancing is a great aerobic exercise which engages the whole body. Lock yourself into a room, or put on your headphones, play your favorite track and let your body flow. Just in letting go, you are in tune with yourself and that is perfection enough.
