What is Dancing Dance is an expression of an intensified sense of life, arising from an inner perception that stimulates both mind and body. It is mans natural and primitive means of expression. The truest expression of a people is in its dances and its music. The body never lies. Dance has been a part of the life of every tribe, society or celebrates through dance. Dance is not only an individual or group experience but also considered as a cultural mirror who wherein the spirit, character and artistry of its time are reflected.

A dance as simple emotional expression when developed into a design with its planned organization of a pattern of movement in rhythm, in space and or ground, with its set of steps, gestures and dynamics becomes a specific dance. And when stylized in a common design becomes a dance form. These dance forms which take centuries to develop, reflect the customs of the society in which they have evolved. According to William Cobbett, Dancing is at once rational and healthful. It is the natural amusement of young

people and such it has been from the days of Moses. Our only quarrel with this statement is the reference to young people, since the recreation of dancing provides pleasure and enjoyment, with relaxation and an improved social life, to people of all ages and all backgrounds. It is an ideal path to health through gentle exercise in these days of tension, stress and sedentary work and pleasures. Those who forsake the television screen to go dancing reap great mental and physical rewards. Dancing is based on natural walking steps forward and backwards. If this can be achieved with balance, control and small steps, the actual

figures will feel and look natural and rhythmic. So it is best to study and work on the recommended exercises before working on the figures.
