Dance is an art form that involves movement of the body, often rhythmic in nature and performed to music. It is practiced in several cultures as a means of social interaction, emotional expression, spiritual expression, or even exercise. It is often utilized as a means of narrative, nonverbal, storytelling.
Stretching on a daily basis will make your body much more flexible and help prevent injuries. The more limber you are, the easier movement will become and the more effortless and fluid your dancing will appear.
The gear required for dance can vary widely, although standard apparel typically consists of a leotard and some type of specialized shoe.
