LET’s talk about… TOUCH !
With all of the new technlogy today, many of us no longer communicate face-to-face, many of us no longer talk to each other. We are become experts at isolating ourselves, experts at having a love relationship with… our computers…Thanks Pierre for reminding us how vital it is for us to reconnect to the most powerful way of communicating : through our instinctive, non-verbal communication. We forget too often the fact that it is through our eye contacts, through our body contacts… that we say the main part of our message ! Whereas getting into a public transportation, or, getting into the elevator, many of us not even take a look at each other.
During three minutes with bated breath, “something happens”. Only the mathematic teacher is laking patience from behind his serious glasses. All the others, deeply captivated by the demonstration, change their mind, understanding little by little… how dancing can teach and increase in each of us – listening, self-respect, discipline, teamwork and even… good manners -.
“This is the magic of ballroom dancing. It teaches many life skills.” explains Pierre in his recent TED talk (see the previous link posted). Dance can change your life. I strongly believe this. It changed mine, when I used to be in the middle of nowhere, facing a divorce process. Learning rock n’roll completely changed my way of living, of seing things, of communicating. Specially towards men, in this difficult period of my life.
Thanks again Pierre, for reminding us how magical life can be if we simply accept to, more and more every single day, manage to find our way back to – look at each other – walk with each other -, contributing to a better world for each of us, and specially for children living in a country at war. No time to loose for this ambitious project ! Let’s dance in pairs : BALLROOM DANCING CAN CHANGE OUR LIVES !
