Challenge #278 - DANCE
Once again, thank you to everyone who took the time and trouble to enter this week.
As usual all were very varied making my decision far from easy.
Sorry I don’t have any fancy galleries for you so I’ll just cut to the chase and tell you my top 3.
1st place goes to afkenner – Three Dancing Maidens
2nd place goes to Jannie – Dancing Bee
And finally, third place goes to Andrewaaa5 – twist and pogo – although I dread to think how or why that photo opportunity came about or how many beverages were consumed in the making!
So, it’s over to you afkenner for challenge #279
Dance is an art form that generally refers to movement of the body, usually rhythmic and to music, used as a form of expression, social interaction or presented in a spiritual or performance setting.
Dance may also be regarded as a form of nonverbal communication between humans, and is also performed by other animals (bee dance, patterns of behaviour such as a mating dance). Gymnastics, figure skating and synchronized swimming are sports that incorporate dance, while martial arts kata are often compared to dances. Motion in ordinarily inanimate objects may also be described as dances (the leaves danced in the wind). So, lets see your interpretation of dance (embarrassing Dad dancers need not apply!:o)
