"In some cultures, basil is a sacred herb; in others, a sign of love; and still others, a medicinal plant. Basil is thought good for the digestive system, nervous headaches, and anxiety. In ancient Greece and Rome, physicians shouted and cursed while sowing the seeds to ensure a good crop. I hope you don't find the same necessary for dancing or teaching this dance."
