Dare to Dance Hand-in-Hand

Sophia (Buono) Martinson ’18 has always loved dancing. It never fails to fill her with joy, she says, and it helps her have a fun time with people she cares about. Unfortunately, the art and joy of dancing, especially partner dancing, is something that has faded in our modern culture. Nowadays, many people’s only experience of dancing involves just a crowd of people in a dark, steamy room. Through her TEDxUND talk, Sophia would like to show that certain types of partner dancing can be not only uplifting experiences, but also models for strong, loving, personal relationships. Dancing can be a great vehicle for positive culture-change and when performed certain ways, it can most certainly go “hand-in-hand” with fostering loving relationships.
