Do Women Express Sexuality In Dance?
 

Dance is a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire."
George Bernard Shaw

Dance is the most attractive but concealed way of sexual expressions. Through symbols and body moments, dance converse the pulse of sexuality but in the most polished form. It is true to say that dance is default with women. Yes, dancing is inborn in every women and their bodies made so flexible to be awesome dancers. Women, who generally do not express sexuality like men do, has always the unique opportunity to express it when they dance. Even though there are nine 'Rasas', the different emotions of human beings, dance is seen prominently concentrated on 'Sringara', the emotional expression of sexuality. By the movements of eyelids, by the flexibility of body and by the the different symbols used, dance is the art of sexual expression especially when a woman does it on stage.

Dancing is a magnificent celebration of eroticism. Dancing is all about celebrating our bodies, expressing ourselves nonverbally, letting our souls soar through our moving bodies. Dance has been the monopoly of women from the very invention of this art. Earlier dancers were to entertain the emperors and administrators in palaces, of course with sexual body moments. Later in the modern times dance became a prestigious art form but the basic mood of sexual expression still clings to it.

A major portion of any dance form is filled of sexuality. The songs say sexual or romantic stories, the symbols are more over sexual related and the mood created in any dance, undoubtedly is erotic to a large extent. Dancing is also an erotic form of communication with a partner, with many partners, or with oneself. Lifting the arms, swinging the legs, rolling the hip... everything and everything in dance communicate much more than words do. Dance being the medium of self expression, gives the complete freedom to women to express their sexuality in the most satisfying form. The vehicle, instrument, and implicit subject of dance is the body. The body is also where sensual and sexual. Thus dance is the sexuality expressed through the medium of human body.

The eminent dance historian Curt Sachs said, "Every dance is and gives ecstasy." Each moment in dance is an elevation of body and mind to the sexual ecstasy. Sexuality, spirituality, sensuality, even rationality are salient features in many forms of dance, but sexuality can never really be extricated from dance, since the sex act itself may be considered as the ultimate form of dance. There are different varieties of dance forms. Within these broad delineations, dances exist that feature or embody sexuality to lesser or greater degrees.

Even though there are male dancers, when they dance unlike sexuality, the beauty of dance steps are more displayed. But the female dance movements exhibit a crystal clear display of vertical sexuality. Sexism is also at the root of female numerical dominance in the grass-roots dance world. The image communicated continually to the lay male world within sexist educational setups is that dance is an approved activity for females but not for males. The concept of dance and women as synonyms is institutionalized.

When stating that women use dance as a medium to express their sexuality, we are not arguing that women dancers do it deliberately. But the traditions have taught them that dance is the best form to display their sexuality. Dances are full of sexual ideas and being the soul owners of this art, women of course follow the same path. But it is a proven fact that when expressing sexuality in dance through the body display and symbols, they enjoy a hidden pleasure as associated with any form sexuality.
