Dance is one of the truest and most articulate expressions that frees the soul from its binds.

It liberates human beings when they dance with feeling and pour out their emotions in dance. Dancing can express rage, love, passions, joy, fun, happiness, sassiness, and the like.

It is a universal art form that people from all walks of life from all around the world can relate to. To dance is to make your body one with your soul. Some people aim for perfection while some aim for grace. Dance gives you a new attitude and helps you make an entertaining story that is a feast for both the soul and the eyes. There are a plethora of dance types that originate from around the globe and are widely popular in certain traditions in certain countries. Many take up dancing as either a hobby or a release and hence it is a great way to relieve oneself of all that extra tension buildup in one's life due to the mundane drudgery that life can seem to become sometimes.  Many dancers might assume they have two left feet before they started dancing. But soon after a little bit of practice, a small confidence boost, and some good choreography, they realize they don't actually have two left feet. All some people need is a little bit of practice.

Dance can make you laugh, it can make you cry. It can make you feel swell and can make you feel fly. The best thing about dance is that there are no limits and you can make up your own steps on the go just like any other art form. Just as liberating as dancing is, so is joking about it. Dance jokes are greatly relevant amongst dancers and even people who do not dance but love watching dances. We all know that those ballet classes can get very stressful with all the perfection they require. Hence, cracking a few silly jokes about ballet dancing and ballerinas is a good way to ease the tension that builds up in your brain as well as your muscles. A dance joke can ease that. Jokes and laughter can make you feel way lighter, hence making your dance routine easier for you to pull off because stress can be an energy killer. Dance is all about the ball of energy that you are, as is a dance joke!
