THE COLIN McENROE SHOW: SHALL WE DANCE?
Why do we dance? Dancing has served a multitude of functions for various cultures throughout history, and there is even evidence to suggest we, as a species, are biologically hard-wired to dance. Whether it's for social, for spiritual , or even psychological reasons (yes, dance therapy is a thing), humans have been dancing since the very beginning. In this hour of NPR's The Colin McEnroe show, all things dance from ancient history, to modern, Hollywood dance movies are discussed.
