I don’t know if you’ve seen the television advert for Orange mobile phones featuring a couple dancing?
It’s been on TV a few times this week and I love it. It’s beautifully choreographed and since I’m an old softy I find it really romantic too.
It ends with the tag line ‘relationships, they get better with time’.
Not sure if that’s always true, but it’s a nice sentiment.
The advert shows a couple who know each other so well they can predict each other’s movements and synchronise together. Whilst you can’t do this as a couple all the time, perhaps it’s a nice training aid for people teaching relationship skills – the ability to predict what your partner will do, support and enable them to do it, and also have the space for your own creativity.
You can view the advert at this site (just click on the ‘play ad’ button to watch the ‘harmonious dance’ advert). Remember to turn the sound up on your computer since the music that goes with the ad is gorgeous.
