Dance: Where is it's Heart?

We think of dance as being of the body, but there must be more to it than that. What if dance is a synonym for body: is there anything simple about that? 

As children we learn that dances have to do with beats, regular beats so that the dancer does not fall flat on their face.  But what about adults remembering dancing, dancing while drunk, while in love, etc., etc.,?

The imagination takes over and we find ourselves, again, at the mercy of forces too diverse to name and too fleeting to contemplate.
