“Those are my principles, and if you don’t like them… well, I have others.” – Groucho Marx
Sometimes, you just gotta dance!
Dancing is a universal form of expression that allows a person to communicate using their body. This art form is also a great way to deal with stress and anxiety.
If you think about it, dance should be something that is used in schools and corporations to help students and employees deal with stress on a daily basis. By allowing a person to dance their blues away, we may find ourselves living in a society where people are a lot more relaxed and in better mental health.
With this said, one can argue that schools should be the first institute on the list to incorporate dance as a means in which to deal with stress and anxiety. Unfortunately, there are enough school shootings to justify the reason why schools are in dire need of a program that can teach youth how to find healthy alternatives to dealing with the stress that life (and others) tend to bring. Such a dance program could even help to eliminate bullying because it will help those kids who tend to bully others to find ways to deal with their own aggression and anger. If you can’t imagine how this program would work, just take a moment to check out this video which provides a perfect example of dance’s ability to be successful.
Here, we have a principal in China that decided to cut a program that taught the kids at his school how to play video games. He felt that having his students sit in front of a computer all day was not a healthy form of stress release. To ensure his students learned the value of self-expression, all while learning how to relieve their stress, he taught them how to dance.
Many of you may have heard of a man named Dre Greenlaw. He was an all-star linebacker for Arkansas who was recently picked up by the San Fran 49ers.
If you DON’T know who he is and you watch professional football, there is a good chance you WILL this season. If you don’t know who he is and you don’t follow football, then just take our word for it – the dude’s a beast.
But it turns out that he’s not just awesome on the field. Greenlaw has proven to be awesome off the field as well.
In this Twitter rant (as told by the father of a young, college woman), Greenlaw helped save his daughter from potential rape and assault.
