Why don’t dogs make good dancers?

Because they have two left feet!

Interesting Fact: Archeological evidence for early dance includes 9,000-year-old paintings in India at the Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka, and Egyptian tomb paintings depicting dancing figures, dated c. 3300 BC. It has been proposed that before the invention of written languages, dance was an important part of the oral and performance methods of passing stories down from generation to generation.[5] The use of dance in ecstatic trance states and healing rituals (as observed today in many contemporary “primitive” cultures, from the Brazilian rainforest to the Kalahari Desert) is thought to have been another early factor in the social development of dance.

Central park in NYC is an amazing place and you can always find something going on. This time we stumbled upon senior dancers who seemed to have so much fun and so much energy.  Hats off to them!  They can easily out dance me in a battle dancing competition.

Interesting Fact: First archeological proof of dance comes from the 9 thousand year old cave paintings in India.  ( http://www.dancefacts.net/ )
