Happy International Dance Day!
“In my world, dance has been intricately interwoven into our lives and existence since earliest childhood. It has always been the key that unlocks human being’s communication with nature and all living beings. In my hometown, there is a saying: ‘If you have legs but cannot dance, you have wasted your life in vain.’ Dance is closely connected to nature and life. As far as I’m concerned, dance is one and the same with nature and life—that is the true essence of dance.” -Yang Liping in her statement for International Dance Day
