Dance is a medium of expression, a physical representation of emotion. As a professional dancer it is essential to put yourself into the shoes of others, to empathise with a feeling or an emotion, in order to connect truthfully with an audience. Imagination plays an integral part in understanding how others might think and feel and how to convey that feeling through movement. By truly trying to empathise with others and imagining not only how they might feel but also how our actions and movements might make them feel, we can strive to be the best of ourselves and help many. Imagination Matters highlights what a crucial skill imagination is and I look forward to supporting this campaign.
