Dance as if it was a traditional dance, like if the movements have existed in hundreds of years, followed people in sorrow and joy, success and and failure. A part of a greater, ancient ritual.
Later addition: this goes for music as well. But remember to keep the movements and the notes young, fresh and new. Every note is played for the first and only time, and deserves attention and love in accordance with that.
