“Laban recognised in people both a need and a devotion to dance, a realisation which led him to emphasise the two-fold nature of the ideas of community dance. On the one hand, dance is an expression which arises out of the community, out of work release or desire for celebration or commemoration. There is a community of feeling which wants to, needs to, mark an occasion. On the other hand dance itself is community, in the preparation, in the organisation and above all, in the experience of dancing for the delight in the shared  experience.

(J.Hodgson, Valerie Preston-Dunlop, 1990, pg. 43)
