40 Dance Quotes to Get You in the Groove

Dancing, the act of being liberated from your reservations. Music and rhythm are some of the world’s natural therapeutic wonders. It’ll be a waste not to enjoy it. When you sway your body rhythmically (or not) to music, you sway your worries away. It doesn’t matter if you look ridiculous twirling your heart out or if your feet feel awkward. Dancing is fun and it’s physically and emotionally good for you. It revives your body as it does your mind. Just feel the music, see where it leads you, and most importantly, ignore the voice in your head that says you look absurd.

Because those who can dance, dance, and those who can’t, there shouldn’t be no stopping them, either. Here are 40 dance quotes to celebrate your love of dancing.
