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 ┬ádisco 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 ┬áspirit 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!
