Beauty in Art
I think Dance is one of the most beautiful forms of art. People can use many different forms to express emotions or a story. The fact that a person can use their body to symbolize something, brings it from ordinary to extraordinary. This particular piece that I chose, titled Addiction, was by contemporary choreographer Mia Michaels and it appeared on So You Think You Think You Can Dance. This dance represents an addict (the girl) and the addiction (the guy) and the battle that the addict goes through in order to fight the addiction. In the end, the addiction ends up winning.
