Dance is a form of art. It is a way of expressing our feelings through the movement of our bodies. We believe that every single person on Earth can dance, since deep in our souls, we all are emotional and sensitive human beings.
Dance is not just a form of art, however. It is a way of communicating with each other and it is a process through which we can express the words we are not able to say by using our voice. Dance goes beyond the technique, you can do nothing with it. You have to feel it. This is why some of the best dancers in the world are lead by their souls and not by techniques. “I’m not so interested in how they move as in what moves them.”, Pina Bausch once said.
No doubt, Mikhail Baryshnikov is one of the best dancers in the whole world and, moreover, in the history of dance.

You can find many movies in which Baryshnikov starred in and you can also meet him in America, since he is part of the New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theatre.
