and skill is an integral part of the artistry of dance.
what people say
Dance is an art form.
It can be studied and learned and at a certain level requires technique and skill. Yet, to dance is also instinctively human. Dance expresses feelings, tells stories, demonstrates strength and power, connects people, creates ritual and celebration and, like art and music, it communicates individual and collective experience in a way that words sometimes can’t. It is
intrinsically linked to our early physical development, as young children experiment with movement responses to the stimulus of the world around them.
Dance can be entertainment
and young children love to ‘put on a show’ for us yet we must never underestimate the power of the small dances that happen when no one is looking! We have all done them in our moments of frustration, joy or excitement, and children do it all the time.
For some children, being seen, even from a distance, may be enough recognition, and for others they will want more space, music and props and maybe an audience.
