WHERE DID IT ALL GO?

Today there are truly wonderful and extraordinarily talented dancers, coming from dance schools with progressive ideas and great creativity. I enjoy watching them and take great pleasure in seeing the art performed.

But way back when they mixed songs with dance, it came in the flavor usually of romance and lifted the spirit to heights that allowed our emotions to run feverishly. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers were the leaders in the dance genre’ that led to some great movies and stories built around the dance they performed.


Gene Kelly danced his way into the minds and hearts of not just lovers, but cinema history and fans in general. Dancing in the rain he was so amazing and talented, as was Astaire on his roller skates in TOP HAT!

Where is the romance? Where did it all go? Why did we stop? I guess because the stories today in movies are based on guns and car chases, with amazing graphics that are digital and or computerized, we lost the human element, love, and emotions.

I love to go to the theater and see musicals more than anything else. The dances and choreography are just amazing and so well done. To see dancing in unison, and solo, along with the lyrics and music paints a canvas of emotional enjoyment you cannot get anywhere else.

Too bad. We are losing another art to progress, we need more of that old time dance and song.
