Happy International Dance Day! Dance can be profoundly expressive and emotional, encompassing lifetimes of traditions and culture. In Shen Yun, a company of bilinguals, oftentimes dance is the lingua franca. On this day, we get our thoughts from three principal dancers on what the art form means to them, personally. Chelsea: "Dance has always felt like fate to me. It is the alarm clock that calls me out of bed each morning.” . . . . #shenyun2017 #shenyun #internationaldanceday #positivity #motivate #inspire
