"Think of the magic of that foot, comparatively small, upon which your whole weight rests. It's a miracle, and the dance is a celebration of that miracle."- Martha Graham
Something truly unique about the world of ballroom dancing is that it is both an art form as well as a sport. There is a lot of work that goes in to making the dancing what it is. There are lessons, practice, and training, which is the sport part of it. However, there is also the artistic aspect. These are things such as the performance, costuming and how the dancer has made themselves up in tanning, make-up, and hair. In order to be successful, a dancer must embody both the athletic side of the dancing as well as the stylistic side.
Ballroom dancing is full of personality, both on and off the floor. Dancing allows people to express themselves without saying anything. That being said, if dancing allows people to express themselves without speaking, then why can't their shoes do the same thing? That is where AIDA Dance USA comes in.
