finally some validation!
a fascinating scientific study that has actually found genetic variants present in dancers. these chromosomal changes suggest that dancers have a heightened sense of communication of a symbolic and ceremonial nature AND a strong spiritual personality trait.
i was talking with some other dancers about this and we were all pretty excited. 1st of all, we know we are kind of a goofy group so it’s nice to be recognized. but more importantly, it’s an interesting study because dancers have always seemed able to seek out other dancers in the world. we need each other. and this presupposes some sort of genetic basis for that instinct.
it’s a unique tribe that i am proud to be a part of.
