How to Celebrate National Dance Day – July 29, 2017

The Wedding Dance in the Open Air by Bruegel the Elder

National Dance Day
July 29, 2017 (Last Saturday in July)

Recognize the profound philosophical treatise that is Men Without Hats’ Safety Dance, when taken in the imperative:

Dance if you want to. [Exhibit self-determined behavior.]

Leave your friends behind. Your friends don’t dance, and if they don’t dance, well, they’re no friends of mine. [Abandon those who are content with heteronomy, abhor autonomy, and are an impediment to your self-realization.]

Go where you want to. [Again, exhibit self-determination with a disregard for societal boundaries.]

A place where they’ll never find. [In particular, explore concepts “friends” (i.e., normals) would purposely ignore.]

Act like you come from out of this world. Leave the real one far behind. [Cast off entirely the trappings of so-called “reality”; it is of no use to you now.]

You can dance.

Now, that is some Allegory of the Cave shit right there.
