Dancing Is Good For The Mind. Body. Spirit. Soul.

dianaross_giorgios_flyerI went out for a fabulous night of classic disco on the Sunset Strip at Giorgio’s – a modern discotheque Saturday night presented by Bryan Rabin and DJ Adam Bravin. It’s a divine feeling to let loose and dance, as Martha Graham once said “Dancing is discovery, discovery, discovery.” There is no right or wrong way – it’s just about getting inside the music. Dancing to classic soulful  disco definitely reminds me of my youth but not in a nostalgic trying to recapture a moment way – simply a reminder that in the now it’s still great to be active, dress up and appreciate quality music with messages that really transcend time – they just happen to have killer grooves..and live strings, and live horns and so much more.

This  spirit fall right along with the theme of my forthcoming glamourous new single “Nightlife”, which will be followed with an EP of soulful quality dance-floor gems of which I’m still deciding on a name – maybe “Paradise” because that’s where the music takes me.

Even if you can’t get out – make some time to dance, even if it’s in your own living room!
