“Dance is active meditation. When we dance, we go beyond thought, beyond mind and beyond our own individuality to become one in the divine ecstasy of the union with the cosmic spirit. This is the essence of the trance dance experience.

Swing Fever: I infer this is from a movie;  I love to watch someone change partners during a swing dance!  It's always so neat!
