Dance is transformation. 37,000 year ago, humans danced dressed as animals, to summon success in the hunt. And it wasn't until the founders of Rome danced with the god Mars that the latter morphed into the infamous god of war. In the Middle Ages, things got more profane, it's true, as gleemen and troubadours entertained audiences with dances on their travels, though here too dance pointed to an otherworld. In the 1920s, dance became ecstatic and carried a heavy sexual connotation, a tendency later extended with rock 'n roll and the fever of a long Saturday night. Dance is a rite of passage, cultural identity and an expression of humans' relationship to their surroundings and their own embeddedness in the world.
