There are so many ways to live up your travel journey experiences. Some opt for the opulent and overtly luxurious, while other revel in the joy of being “one of the locals”. Some might consider cultural and artistic pursuits to be paramount yet others yearn to have a taste of the places they journey to.
How about adding dancing at a formal ball to your journeying experience? One where you will be waltzing away in an ornate ballroom. One where you can be combining culture (the dance) with a tour (the location of the ball). Unlike sitting passively listening to an orchestra, here you would have some liberty to express yourself and enjoy it. Try swaying too much on your seat the next time you attend a symphony and you’ll see how the people around you respond. LOL.
Of course you can also tap dance your way across town, if without the taps on the heels of your shoes… Singing (in the rain?), ok humming as you traipse along the streets taking photos and saying hi to the folks. Absorbing the sun shine (on a rainy day?), makes my soul, makes my soul trip trip away…. so an old song from the 90s went.
Seriously, does music and dance figure in your mind when you are exploring a new destination? We think it is one element that should not be missing when you travel. Just like missing out on Jazz when you are in NOLA, it would be truly the sound of silence if one ignores the iconic music each city/town or even rural countryside brings.
Will you take a dance to the street or in the ballroom in your next journey?
