    DANCE DANCE DANCE
    not a movie,
    not a video,
    not an Exercise
    not a drama
    but above all included
    DANCE DANCE DANCE
    the body of the music,
    the actions of the music,
    the love of the audience
    the likeness of the different image of gods
    is DANCE DANCE DANCE
