Here's something that many dancers don't hear often, or don't accept with their hearts open, or accept but regret: some people do not like to dance. At all. What are your thoughts when you hear it? Do you ask this person to try it once more with you? Do you feel skeptical? Or do you just wish this person to be happy with another passion?

Some people, those lucky ones who like dancing, do so because it makes them feel complete, relaxed, alive. They also enjoy the interaction with their friends and partners. Socially speaking, you also should dance because people will feel more attracted to you; it makes you more

They also enjoy the interaction with their friends and partners. Socially speaking, you also should dance because people will feel more attracted to you; it makes you more "likeable". ⠀ Other people don't dance because they just don’t “Feel it”. They don’t feel the desire, the passion to move their body at the sound of any music. That does not mean they are immune to music. Heck no. Music can make them feel different types of emotions: sadness, joy, nostalgia, happiness, adrenaline, fear; it can make their hearts beat and give them goosebumps. Music puts their brains in ecstasy, but not their bodies. People who say they don’t dance because they don’t “feel it” have a very valid reason not to dance. Have you ever tried to do anything when you don’t feel it? Like, singing, writing, playing a video game... Whatever it is, if you force it, it will feel dull, dry, and awkward. It feels the same for non-dancers, but for other people they may seem boring, antisocial, or party poopers. ⠀ And if they are forced to dance, they don’t like it because they have no idea of what they’re doing and feel awkward about it. Non-dancers still enjoy music as much, if not more, than dancers. They feel intense emotions and get inspired from music. The only minor, minuscule difference is that non-dancers were born without that switch that should turn on the moment music starts playing and that would make them want to move their bodies gracefully and harmoniously and thus feel alive. ⠀ (Christian Belman for quora.com) ⠀ Dancer: @julinhajohann Photographer: @smagaelena Sandals: Maya by Swayd
