Human beings probably danced even before there was a word for it. Rhythmic bodily movement is instinctive. It connects people, even if unconsciously, to the rhythms of nature. The grounded movement is notably different from ballet's upward lift - itself in relation to western melodic forms. Dance is a form of expression that supersedes verbal language; it is possible to convey far more meaning in a sweeping gesture than a simple phrase. Dance springs from a human desire for personal expression and social connection. and it feels good.
