4: When you turn on the radio or put in your favorite CD something happens that you don't intend. You begin to move. There is a rhythm inside of you that makes you move your head, snap your fingers or actually move your whole body. You begin to dance!
5: People all over the world have this same feeling to dance and don’t realize it is something that has been passed down to them for generations.
6: Let’s take a look at how cultures around the world have expressed themselves through dance across the world. | Dance is an art form that generally refers to movement of the body, usually rhythmic and to music used as a form of expression, social interaction or presented in a spiritual or performance setting. Whether you are in your room alone or on stage in front of thousands of people, the feeling is just as great.
7: In America, dance is traditionally performed with couples. | Dances are energetic and can involve lifts, spins and jumps.
8: In India, dances take on a more personal and spiritual aspect. Dances have been created to tell stories of the past and how it has led to present day.
9: One exciting group dance is in China where the traditional Dragon Dance usually takes place during Chinese New Year to bring in good luck and prosperity for the new year.
10: Like China, German Dance includes group dances in their traditions. Dancers often held hands and performed line dances together. It's very exciting to see!
11: Nowhere is the diversity and rich cultural heritage of Mexico more evident than in its folk dances. Dances that were performed many years ago are still being taught and performed today all across the world.
13: No matter who you are, where you are, or how old you are, we all have an internal rhythm. Dance is one aspect of human life that requires no training. The next time you're with your friends or family, play a song and watch them move! Now...Let's DANCE!!!
