About Movement and Dance

Dance has evolved over many centuries, and definitions of what consitutes as dance are dependent on social, cultural, artistic, aesthetic and moral constraints. 

Although the history of dance cannot be clearly traced through physical historical artefacts, many contemporary dance forms can be traced back to historical, traditional, ethnic and ceremonial origins.

Although the history of dance cannot be clearly traced through physical historical artefacts, many contemporary dance forms can be traced back to historical, traditional, ethnic and ceremonial origins.

Many styles of dance and movement now exist, and vary from Breakdancing to Ballet, Tribal African dances to Folk, Bollywood to Cheerleading, Country and Western to Belly Dancing.

No matter what style of dance you wish to engage in, they all have something in common. Dance not only involves flexibility and whole body movement, but also an awareness of physics, as if the proper physics are not adhered to, injuries can occur.
