What is Dance?

Dance is more than exploring different ways to make a shape or learning a series of steps to music. It is a way of moving that uses the body as an instrument of expression and communication. Through dance, students learn teamwork, focus, and improvisational skills.

Benefits of Dance

The health benefits of dancing include; improved condition of your heart and lungs, increased muscular strength, endurance and improved motor fitness. However, there are also recognised dance benefits for our general wellbeing and recent studies show there are benefits for our mind. Dancing requires a variety of different skills, both mental and physical. Dancing requires not only balance, strength, and endurance but also cognitive ability, adaptability and concentration to move according to the music and partner, artistry for graceful and fluid motion and memory for choreography.

Dancehall

Dancehall is one of the many forms of freestyle that grew out of African and Jamaican slaves. Dancers have cultivated the art form to become a style of choreographed dance. The name dancehall originated from the dance halls of Jamaica, where people would come together to dance. Though the style increased in popularity during the 1970s and '80s, dance halls existed long before then. Dancehall music is derived from reggae and ska. Just like other dance styles, dancehall has specific steps, and the social element comes in when dancers perform the steps together. Students want to learn the steps and will recognise the music of artists such as Rihanna.
