Dancing can be a moving meditation. Why do you think that since ancient times, rituals and ceremonies included dancing? It can alter your state of mind and make an event special.
The body takes on a mind of its own, as it becomes entrained to the music and develops movements that ride the waves of the music. As the body pursues that single focus, there is nothing other than the present, the dance.
You have this moment, this music, this movement, this joy, this peace, this energetic shift that has changed your consciousness. As the body does what the body does, the mind is quieted, and the joy of living comes to the surface, front and center. In this moment, where there is nothing but the dance, there is nothing else to desire, except to feel the dance. The dance is the desire, expressed.

I've been in this group a few years, mostly never have had time to read or comment, but knew one day I would want to. Out here in Colorado, doing mystic dance theater and a tv show. http://youtube.com/user/JOURNEYSwithSkylark
Here is a picture I made that seems to illustrate " Dance is Desire, Expressed" Thanks for it.
