Que arte!!! ❤️

Fragmento de entrevista con Pablo Picasso:
- Por qué bailas?
- No hay un ′′ porque ", yo bailo.
Eres un artista plástico que baila?
Sí... o un bailarín que pinta, lo que prefieras.
Desde cuándo bailas?
Desde siempre.
Qué piensas cuando bailas?
No pienso, lo siento.
Qué sientes?
- Amor.
Amor?
- Sí, sí.
- Pero... por qué?
- No hay un ′′ porque ′′ para el amor.
Sientes algo más?
- Vida.
Qué quieres decir?
Algunos, solo algunos, hacen en esta tierra aquello para lo que fueron creados. Estos viven. Otros sobreviven... Quien baila vive.
El baile es algo esencial?
Respirar es esencial? Respondí tu pregunta primaria?
(Sonrisas de ′′ canto de boca ′′ - silencio)
- Pero... hay un ′′ precio ′′ por esa elección...
Por bailar? Sí, la hay.
Es caro?
No importa.
Pagaste este precio?
Todavía pago.
- Deberías bailar para alguien...
- También, quiero decir, no solo para alguien, o por una razón... Bailas porque naciste para bailar, así como pintas porque los cuadros ya existen dentro de ti, solo los liberas; así es con el baile, ella ya Se mueve dentro de ti, si no la libera es capaz de... ni siquiera sé! Una hormiga hace su trabajo sin cuestionar, las aves vuelan sin cuestionar, los peces nadan... los hombres, algunos matan, otros prefieren hacer aquello para lo que fueron creados: AMAR.
Bailo, pinto, amo
(silencio - intercambian miradas)
Siempre bailas?
Solo cuando me encanta.
Cuándo te encanta?
Cuando bailo.
(sonríen)
Quieres bailar conmigo?
- No sé, no sé si tengo coraje... tengo miedo.
Entiendo... realmente asusto, bailo.

Why dance is just as important as math in school

There is a persistent myth that arts education is for the gifted and talented, but we know that the arts benefit everyone regardless of their vocational pathways,” he says. “We don’t teach math solely to create mathematicians, and we don’t teach writing solely to create the next generation of novelists. The same holds true for the arts. We teach them to create well-rounded citizens who can apply the skills, knowledge and experience from being involved in the arts to their careers and lives.”

http://ideas.ted.com/why-dance-is-just-as-important-as-math-in-school/

ideas.ted.com Dance — and physical activity — should have the same status in schools as math, science and language. Psst: it may even help raise test scores, says Sir Ken Robinson.
