More Than Movement
ABOUT THE FILM
The documentary, “More Than Movement,” explores the different aspects that make dance what it is, from the perspective of dancers. There are many different arguments about what dance is considered, such as a sport, an art, a hobby, exercise, or all of the above. Professional dancers spend many hours in rehearsals training their bodies for performances, similar to any athlete who goes to practice to train for a game. It can also be compared to 2-dimensional art, where time and space would be the canvas and the dancer would paint the canvas with the movements of their body. The same way there are different styles of 2-dimensional art, such as drawing and painting, there are many different styles of dance. But in common, all the styles include movement with meaning and purpose. So, dance is used to tell stories, as well as communicate and express emotions, but without words.
