You stand in a crowd and you begin to feel the bass bumping. It’s a feeling that slowly creeps up from your feet and into your heart, syncing every part of your body with the rhythm of the song that’s playing. The beat begins to take over your surroundings; everything and everyone you see seems to pulsate to the same acoustic ripples. You’re taken out of your head and into your body. Suddenly, you are the party. And, at the center of it all, there’s a DJ who’s happily pulling everyone’s strings. Dancing, after all, is really good for you.
