Dance is evidence of survival. Dance is a ceremonial undertaking that evokes the past, present, and future. Dance is a human phenomenon in which our history is inscribed on and transmuted through moving bodies. Dance is a technology that dictates how we engage with our bodies while we are dancing. Dance is both cultural artifact to be gatekept and protected and acultural ephemera for popular consumption mediated by social media platforms. Dances come from a geographical and metaphysical location, have context, and take place within a political sphere that acknowledges the body's ethnic background, spiritual condition, and the physical environment in which the dance is performed. When we go about creating dance, we engage with the physical, metaphysical, medicinal, historical, cultural, contextual, primordial, and technological tenets of human existence.
