Shall we dance? Why should we dance? (fashion illustration of the day) / Hoćemo li zaplesati? Zašto bismo trebali plesati? (modna ilustracija dana)

Shall we dance? Before you even answer that question, here is another one. Why should we dance? Actually, there are a number of reasons why we should dance. So, even if you're not a dance lover, you might want to consider at least dancing in the privacy of your own home or when nobody is watching (I'm always dancing when nobody is watching). Anyhow, here are five reasons why you should consider /reconsider being up for a dance or two: 

Hoćemo li zaplesati? Prije nego što odgovorite na to pitanje, evo još jednoga. Zašto bi trebali plesati. Zapravo postoji niz razloga zbog kojih bi trebali plesati. Tako da čak ako i ne volite ples, možete razmisliti o tome da barem zaplešete u privatnosti svoga doma ili kada nitko ne gleda (ja uvijek plešem kada nitko ne gleda). Uglavnom evo pet razloga zašto biste trebali razmisliti o tome da budete raspoloženi za pokoji ples: 

1. Dancing has been proven to reduce anxiety. I think it is because it functions both as physical release of body tension and an emotional activity. Listening to our favourite music often has a relaxing effect on us. Furthermore, dancing is an exercise method that is relatively stress free. Therefore, dancing can be used as method of reducing our stress levels.  Dokazano je da plesanje smanjuje anksioznost. Mislim da je to stoga što funkcionira i kao fizičko opuštanje tenzije tijela i kao emocionalna aktivnost. Slušanje naše omiljene glazbe često nas opušta. Nadalje, ples kao metoda vježbanja je relativno nisko stresan. Tako da se ples može koristiti kao metoda smanjenja stresa. 

 
2. Dancing is not only good for our physical well being, it is also proven to have psychological benefits. It can improve our mood. The mathematics of this is quite simple. Physical activity is beneficial for our body and our mood, hence dance is beneficial for our bodies and mood. It is a win-win situation. There is such a thing as dance/movement therapist, you know? If there is a whole therapy theory behind it, you know there are ways you can use it for yourself. So, give it a try. Ples nije samo dobar za naše tijelo, dokazano je da ima i psihološle prednosti. Može nam poboljšati raspoloženje. Matematika toga je jednostavna. Fizička aktivnost je dobra za naše tijelo i raspoloženje, stoga je ples dobar za naše tijelo u raspoloženje. To je situacija u kojoj svatko dobiva. Postoje terapeuti pokreta i plesa, jeste li to znali? Ako iza nečega postoji cijela terapeutska teorija, onda znate da to možete koristiti za sebe. Tako da, probajte. 








3. Dancing has had a liberating effect on many. Now, this 'liberating effect' is somewhat of a mystery. It is hard to define, isn't it? Why have human beings always danced? If we look at our earliest myths, often they include dancing. Think of lord Shiva's dance of destruction and creation. What is it about dance that sets us free? Perhaps the movement? Getting lost in the moment? In this modern world that demands from us a lot of planning, dancing seems to be one of those activities that allows us to live in the moment.  Ples je na mnoge imao oslobođavajući učinak. Zapravo, ovaj osjećaj slobode je pomalo misterija. Teško ga je definirati, zar ne? Zašto su ljudska bića uvijek plesala? Ako pogledate najranije mitove, oni često u sebi nose ples. Razmislite o gospodu Šivi i njegovom plesu stvaranja i uništenja. Što je to u plesu što nas oslobađa? Možda pokret? Izgubljenost u trenutku? U ovom modernom svijetu koji od nas zahtjeva puno planiranja, ples se čini kao jedna od onih aktivnosti koje nam omogućavaju da živimo u sada. 






4. Dancing can make us feel better about our bodies. Recently, I wrote about body perception (here). The psychological and emotional benefits of dancing, connected with psychical ones can be quite potent. Together they can be utilized to make ourselves feel better about our bodies. Turn out your favourite music and move. Before you know it, you might experience something you will like- you know, like in that song: I like to move it, move it. Ples može učiniti da se osjećamo bolje u vezi naših tijela. Nedavno, pisala sam o percepcija tijela (ovdje). Psihološke i emotivne prednosti plesanja, povezane s fizičkima mogu biti jako snažne. Zajedno ih možemo iskoristiti da se osjećamo bolje u svom tijelu. Uključite najdražu glazbu i krećite se. Prije nego što primjetite, možda iskusite nešto što vam se sviđa, znate kao u onoj pjesmi: I like to move it, move it. 



5. Dance improves our balance and posture. This might not seem like much to you, but hey it is always good to reduce our chances of breaking a limb or too. While we're young, we're less likely to fall and injure ourselves, but the changes of actually falling and injuring ourselves increase significantly with age.  Dancing can help prevent that. It can also fight of dementia. True, this is true of any psychical activity, but as I explained dancing does come with a set of additional benefits.  Ples poboljšava našu ravnotežu i držanje. To vam se možda ne čini kao nešto posebno, ali uvijek je dobro smanjiti šanse da slomimo ruku ili nogu. Dok smo mladi, manje su šanse da  padnemo i ozlijedimo se, ali s godinama te se šanse značajno poboljšavaju. Ples može pomoći u prevenciji toga. Također nam pomaže u borbi protiv senilnosti. Istina, to vrijedi za svaku tjelesnu aktivnost, ali kao što sam objasnila ples doisa dolazi s još nekim dodatnim prednostima. 












Enough with the writing, let's just say a few words about the image in this post. Today I'm sharing another fashion illustration with you. The medium is watercolour on paper. I cheated a little and used a brown marker to do the eyes (because the frame is quite small and it was a challenge doing it with a brush). I illustrated a lady wearing a blue gown. Isn't it lovely? I always liked heart shaped dresses and tops. I wish I knew how to make it. I would love to have a blue gown like this. Who wouldn't? For now, I'm more focused on making fashion illustrations (and other kind of illustrations and paintings) than on making the actual clothing items, but one day who knows?

Dosta pisanja, samo još par riječi o slici u ovoj objavi. Danas dijelim još jednu modnu ilustraciju sa vama. Medij su vodene boje na papiru. Malo sam varala pa sam koristila smeđi marker za oči (mali je format pa je bilo teško to izvesti s kistom). Ilustrirala sam damu u plavoj haljini. Zar nije lijepa? Voljela bi da znam kako je napraviti. Uvijek sam voljela haljine i toplove sa srcolikim izrezom. Voljela bi da znam kako je napraviti. Voljela bi imati ovakvu plavu haljinu. Tko ne bi? Za sada, više sam usmjerena na pravljene modnih ilustracija ( i ostalih vrsta ilustracija i slika) nego na pravljene samih odjevnih predmeta, ali jednoga dana, tko zna?

  17. Ova objava tako poziva na ples :) Ja mnogo volim plesanje, čak sam bila na korak da se njime profesionalno bavim kad sam bila tinejdžerka. Skoro sve može da se reši uz pravu muziku i pokret i mislim da mi nema draže fizičke aktivnosti. Plus su tu i sve psiho-fizičke prednosti koje si navela. Ilustracija divno dočarava temu, deluje kao da će svakog časa da zapleše :) A haljina je fantazija! Zaista, ko je ne bi poželeo? ;)

    1. nisam to znala:) baš zanimljivo. Ja isto jako volim ples i baš mi je žao što nisam nikada upisala neku plesnu školu...ali kao što se kaže, nikad nije kasno.

  18. Tako je Ivanice! Obozavam da plesem. Kao mala sam isla na klasican i latino ples, puno toga sam zaboravila, ali plesem i dalje, najcesce u kutku svog doma :-) Tada zaboravim na sve brige i prepustim se muzici.
    Ilustracija je kao stvorena za ovu temu. Haljina je fenomenalna.

  20. I love dancing, dear Ivana! I am a certified flamenco dancer, I used to present myself in big theaters :) So I really really love to dance! And yes, it's liberating, it makes us more conscious about our postures, about our bodies... and it is good for our halth, mentally and physically speaking! I loved your illustration, as usual, and using rose petals to photograph it was excellent! I love the blue gown and the brown marker resonates with me - I normally only wear brown eye pencils :) Lovely post, dear Ivana, and thanks for your amazing support, always, but during the last 2 weeks even more! Hugs and regards!

  21. Plesanje stvarno podiže raspoloženje u roku od par sekundi, ja obožavam skakutati po stanu dok sam sama, uvijek to radim da se razgibam malo nakon višesatnog sjedenja za laptopom :D Baš razmišljam kako bi bilo lijepo jednog dana vidjeti ove tvoje ilustracije u obliku pravih kreacija, držim fige da se u nekom trenutku odvažiš i na taj korak! :)

  22. Io adoro ballare!!! Da sola, in compagnia, ovunque, credo sia un'ottimo sistema per scaricare lo stress e tornare di buonumore senza contare quando devi riordinare che se lo fai ballando diventa quasi piacevole)! Non per niente ho fatto danza classica per quasi 10 anni!^^
    Bellissima la tua illustrazione, chi non vorrebbe indossare un'abito così? :D
    Baci!

  23. Yes, freestyle dancing is very liberating. I piloted an expressive dance club with my 5-6year olds at school last year where they used chiffon scarves and were allowed to move freely with them. They really enjoyed the feeling that came with that liberty. I love swing dancing and English country dancing, it brings me real joy.
    The illustration is beautiful. I had (and in text, still have) a dress in that shade though it has a straight neck line!

  27. "Shall we dance?" - of course...;-) i like to dance and i see it really well if other people have the same love in dancing like i do. i think you´re a great dancer - anyway which dancing style: ballet, hip hop, salsa, tango,...

    i wished this were a pic set where we can see you dancing, but i like these painting too. you create an intresting dancing dress and i also love this idea with all the roses.

    nice one!

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
