The Culture of Dance
There are countless dance forms. Each continent, country, region and sometimes even city have their own specific dances. There are Cultural Dances, Social Dances and Group Dances such as Line, Square and Circle Dances. Other styles of Dancing include, but are by no means limited to Free Dancing, Tap Dancing, Swing Dancing, Ballroom Dancing, Break Dancing, Disco Dancing, Samba Dancing and Belly Dancing.
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.
Dancing also has different purposes. 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.
Modern dances, however, lack a story element and are generally solely for entertainment. 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. If you are travelling to participate in Dance Competition, no matter which style, make sure that you have the proper Travel Insurance. Dancing, after all, is a performance art and requires the movement of the body and a high level of flexibility and elasticity.
Popular Events for Dancing
Dancing is popular all over the world. There is no culture or country that does not know some kind of dance, be it more primitive or more complex. Most competitive dances, however, take place in Western countries. These dances include solo, couple, trio and group dances. Common types of dances in competitions are ballet, jazz, tap, hip-hop and contemporary.
Generally speaking, the bigger Dance Competitions are organised by independent production companies. These Companies move from one region to the next, scouting for dance talent. A competition usually ends with a national competition in which the regional winners compete against one another.
Although some Companies and Competitions focus on a particular dance style examples are the popular TV shows Strictly Come Dancing and Dancing with the Stars that focus on Latin and Ballroom dancing others are open to all kinds of dancing the TV show So You Think You Can Dance is a good example of that.
