Everything has a rhythm: everything dances. Maya Angelou

Dance is the very expression of ourselves - the orchestrating of our emotions in motion - and in a post-modern, post-industrial world, where we send e-mails to people we've never met, make digital friends and gaze into cyber-space, it's good to be able to get off of our seats, stretch our legs and move to music with another human being. Let's face it Xbox Kinect just isn't the same.

All the ills of mankind, all the tragic misfortunes that fill the history books, all the political blunders, all the failures of the great leaders have arisen merely from a lack of skill at dancing. Moliere

Which is probably why Unison, The Corporation of London and The Grenadier Guards have had us teach their senior executives how to ably acquit themselves on the dance-floor.

Never trust a spiritual leader who cannot dance. Mr. Miyagi ' The Next Karate Kid'

So it's just as well Pope Francis danced tango in his youth.

A life lived in fear is a life half-lived. Fran in 'Strictly Ballroom'

And isn't that just the truth ?
