There are countless Dance forms. Each continent, country, region and sometimes even city has its 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, Swing Dancing, Ballroom Dancing, Break Dancing, Tap Dancing, Disco Dancing, Samba Dancing and Belly Dancing.
Every music genre also 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 and other partner dances. Most Pop dances and, for example, Rock dances are purely for one is own entertainment and are done individually at Concerts, Festivals or in Bars and Nightclubs.
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 a concert, foreign festival or any other party, event or happening, no matter which style, make sure that you have the proper insurance. Dancing, after all, is a performance art and requires the movement of the body and a high level of flexibility and elasticity.
Although injuries sustained while dancing are fairly rare, they do occasionally happen. If you are travelling to a one time dance competition, a single trip policy will suffice. If you are participating in more than one Competition in the time span of a year, you will be better off with an annual policy.
