    • History of Dance
    • INTRODUCTIONDance is an art form that involves movement of the body. It is not possible to say when this form of art originated; however, it started thousands of years ago. Dance may be participatory, social, performed , ceremonial, or competitive. It is an important part of ceremonies, rituals, celebrations, and entertainment. Choreography may be performed solo, with a partner, or with a group; either way, each dance tells a story.
    • Types of DanceBalletJazzHip-HopModernCountry and WesternFolk Dance
    • BalletBallet serves as a backbone for many other styles of dance, as many other dance genres are based on ballet. Ballet is based on techniques that have been developed over centuries. Ballet uses music and dance to tell stories. Ballet dancers have the ability to transport an audience to another world.
    • JazzJazz is a fun dance style that relies heavily on originality and improvisation. Many jazz dancers mix different styles into their dancing, incorporating their own expression. Jazz dancing often uses bold, dramatic body movements, including body isolations and contractions.
    • Hip-HopHip-hop is a dance style, usually danced to hip-hop music, that evolved from the hip-hop culture. Hip-hop includes various moves such as breaking, popping, locking and krumping, and even house dance. Improvisation and personal interpretation are essential to hip-hop dancing.
    • ModernModern dance is a dance style that rejects many of the strict rules of classical ballet, focusing instead on the expression of inner feelings. Modern dance was created as a rebellion against classical ballet, emphasizing creativity in choreography and performance.
    • Country and WesternCountry and western dance includes several dance forms, usually danced to country- western music. If youve ever been to a country and western club or tavern, youve probably seen a few cowboy boot-wearing dancers twirling around the dance floor with big smiles on their faces.
    • Folk DanceFolk dance refers to a variety of dances developed by groups or communities, as opposed to being made up by a choreographer. There are several types of folk dance including clogging, English country dance, international folk dance, Irish dance, Maypole dance, Morris dance, Nordic polska dance, square dance, and many more. Folk dances are often performed at social events.
