What Is Dance?

Dance [dans]


  • move rhythmically to music, typically following a set sequence of steps.


  • a series of movements that match the speed and rhythm of a piece of music.

Dancing is performed in many cultures as a form of emotional expression, social interaction, or exercise and is sometimes used to express ideas or tell a story. Dancing is entertaining.

There are so many varieties of dancing and some are more popular than others. We have: Ballet dancing, Tap dancing, Modern dancing, Jazz dancing, Hip-Hop dancing, Ballroom dancing, Latin dancing, Disco dancing, Folk Dancing, Highland dancing, Irish dancing, Indian dancing, Flamenco dancing, Belly dancing, Line dancing or even Appalachian Clog Dancing, to name but a few!

But whether it’s the beauty and grace of Ballet, the rhythmic patterns of Tap, the fast-paced and sensual movements of Latin, or the energetic freedom of Hip-Hop, there is a style of dance for everyone.
