Group A – Did 1 set of strength training that involved 9 exercises for 8 to 12 reps.

Everyone should dance. Dance every chance you get. Dance everywhere. The “Travel guide” will show ways to travel overseas for the same price as domestic flights. Ever wonder what dance festivals and dance studios are like in different countries, the “Dance Festival” section will help answer this questions by providing information about various studios and festivals across the globe.

Albert Einstein once said that “Dancers are the athletes of God.” To help keep the dancer’s body in peak form, the Dancer’s bodies section will shift through peer-reviewed medical journals to provide the latest advice from the medical community in regards to training, injury and recovery.

“Dance…..a living, breathing, dynamic art form that radiates the heart and crystallizes the soul. To describe the indescribable, to feel the unknown, to exist at one moment in a sea of eternity; that rare glimpse into the deeps of forever. To live a life and to never dance, why that’s hardly a life at all.” – Volak Sin

Hopefully, by showcasing the best and most passionate works of dance in the Showcase section, more people will be inspired to dance.
