She goes on to add that learning to move the body can be a form of self-expression. “It’s an inherent quality in us that as human beings, we express ourselves through our body. As children, that comes easier to us but as we grow up, we stop doing that and start judging ourselves for it. For example, as children, we have jumped with joy after getting chocolates or sweets but as we grew up, even if we feel the same emotions, we do not emote that way. We tell ourselves that it does not look right or that it is not right,” says Rukmini.
