Dance is a performance art form consisting of purposefully selected sequences of human movement. This movement has aesthetic and symbolic value, and is acknowledged as dance by performers and observers within a particular culture. Dance can be categorized and described by its choreography, by its repertoire of movements, or by its historical period or place of origin. Other forms of human movement are sometimes said to have a dance-like quality, including martial arts, gymnastics, figure skating, synchronized swimming and many other forms of athletics.
Dance has many therapeutic psychological benefits as well as physical benefits such as conditioning of your heart and lungs, increasing muscular tone, endurance and motor fitness and is a great way to stay in shape at any age level.
