Lose Yourself to Dance in Warsaw

The act of contorting the body to the beat of a sound or melody is as old as human beings have been on the face of the earth. Dancing is innate to the human condition: as a method of expression and communication, a ritual/ceremony for social bonding or communion, a way of healing or simply a ludic activity. At every stage of our evolution as a species, its functions and purposes have also changed. As the homus urbanus pleasure-seeking creatures of today, we roam our habitat of cement jungles waiting for the right time to lose ourselves to dance. So, whether you’re a weekend warrior waiting to be unleashed into battle or a spiritual dancer awaiting liturgy, these are 10 places to dance in Warsaw you need to know about.
