Dance: Most famous styles during decades

By: Silvia Helena Cardoso

Howard Gardner, a renowned writer, lecturer, and professor at Harvard University, defined the seven basic human intelligences. One of them is Body Intelligence. Body intelligence is the ability to use the body to express emotion. Dance is one of the best example of it.

Definitions of what constitutes dance are dependent on social, cultural, aesthetic, artistic and moral constraints and range from functional movement (such as folk dance) to virtuoso techniques such as ballet.

Dance is also used to describe methods of non-verbal communication between humans or animals (bee dance, patterns of behaviour such as a mating dance), motion in inanimate objects (the leaves danced in the wind), and certain musical forms or genres.

Dance movements may be without significance in themselves, such as in ballet or European folk dance, or have a gestural vocabulary/symbolic system as in many Asian dances. Dance can embody or express ideas, emotions or tell a story.

Everybody should learn to dance. Dancing teaches you about pace, rhythm, and how to move your body.

There are many different styles of dance. In the video below you will know the most remarkable styles of dance along the history.
