The Culture of Dance

Dancing is the oldest form of human self expression, one of the oldest forms of Art.

Nowadays, it continues to be immensely popular and is done virtually anywhere, from streets and living rooms to nightclubs and festivals.

Dancing Competitions are also as popular as ever, whether it is on TV or in real life.

As a Performance Art, Competitive Dancing is a skilled activity that requires practise, elegance, a good physical shape and dedication.

Every music genre has its own particular dance styles, from the Mambo, Rumba and Salsa dances associated with Latin music to the moonwalk and robot dances in pop music to the Boogie Woogie, Charleston and Stomp dances that in jazz music.

Theatrical dances have a high entertainment and performance level and generally take place on a stage in front of a crowd of spectators. These dances usually tell a story, which is enhanced by the use of costumes, attributes and gestures.

Other dances have a social and interactive purpose examples are Ballroom Dancing and other partner dances.

The earliest archaeological evidence for Dancing dates from about 7,000 BC, which was when the inhabitants of prehistoric India painted dancing figures in rock shelters. Dancing is older than writing and this is why it has always played a major role in the passing on of stories and knowledge from one generation to the next.

The importance of dance in general is still as significant as ever, as is shown in the abundance of modern dance competitions on TV or elsewhere.

Dance Masters - Porec , Croatia - May 25th to May 29th
