If you react to something, for example your movement to music or vice versa, you or your body responds to a sensation you received. But there are several ways you could guide your reaction into something conscious. If you understand rhythm as a question of perception you could ask yourself what you want to focus on while receiving sound or movement. Are you receiving something on an emotional level, are you following your associations, is it only your kinesthetic sense that wants to react, do you hear or see something in connection to the room, for example as an expansion or contraction or do you hear or see a structure which can lead you to a certain kind of reaction? Maybe then, reaction already starts to be a form or a shape.
