Dance: The Universal Language

First, if you have not already, please watch the hour-long program titled “Celebrating African-American Women & Dance” held at the White House by FLOTUS Mrs. Obama yesterday. Below are screenshots that I gathered of the event while watching it a few times. Sorry there aren’t more, but capturing dance & screengrabbing it from a 740p stream is not ideal. The Ballet & Hip-Hop were too hard to capture anything crisp or clear, while also being well composed.

This is art in its best, in the moment, everyone is present, there is no room to go out or think about anything else.

We are dancing to that beat. That One. The One, The One that comes from the mother continent Africa.


It is the universal language & we speak it everywhere.
