I recently read that the Tunisian choreographer Radhouane El Meddeb likes to cook while he dances and vice versa. 
I am trying to imagine that situation. Wonder how he could manage both.

Dancing they say is an expression of the mind.
I never miss a chance to click pictures when people are dancing and one out of ten turn out to be a good shot.

It can be of small kids trying to do what the adults do

Or of couples having a good time

Or of those in a group dance

The bride may be having a good time with her friends

 Or it could be her first dance with the father-in-law

If you go in for the low angle then foot work is something that can be of interest while dancing (especially if its a wooden floor)

A small gathering in the family at home is an excuse for the kids to freak out
Here is one at the mehendi ceremony (during the engagement)

The gentle breeze from the river is good enough reason for all to shake a leg in a house boat
Like I said, dancing is an expression of the state of your mind.
What do you say?

Sounds like great expression, if you ask me.

I like to turn on music in the middle of the afternoon and dance with my three-year-old daughter.

As long as it is in good taste, dancing is delightful!

I love to dance outside in the rain or anywhere for that matter. *waving*

Great photos, Joe! I like seeing the expressions on all the faces. They all look pretty happy to me. :)

I like it when older people dance, and kids act amazed. That might not be such a deal in India, (it isn't in the Caribbean) but in the U.S., to be older and shake a leg to "modern" music can often times raise the eyebrows of the young. I love to dance.
