Performance and participation Members of an American jazz dance company perform a formal group routine A discussion on dancing a concert dance setting Theatrical dance, also called performance or concert dance, is intended primarily as A discussion on dancing spectacle, usually a performance upon a stage by virtuoso dancers.
It often tells a storyperhaps using mimecostume and sceneryor else it may simply interpret the musical accompanimentwhich is often specially composed. Examples are western ballet and modern danceClassical Indian dance and Chinese and Japanese song and dance dramas.
Most classical forms are centred upon dance alone, but performance dance may also appear in opera and other forms of musical theatre. Participatory dance, on the other hand, whether it be a folk dancea social dancea group dance such as a linecirclechain or square danceor a partner dance such as is common in western Western ballroom dancingis undertaken primarily for a common purpose, such as social interaction or exerciseof participants rather than onlookers.
Such dance seldom has any narrative. A group dance and a corps de balleta social partner dance and a pas de deuxdiffer profoundly. Even a solo dance may be undertaken solely for the satisfaction of the dancer. Participatory dancers often all employ the same movements and steps but, for example, in the rave culture of electronic dance musicvast crowds may engage in free danceuncoordinated with those around them.
On the other hand, some cultures lay down strict rules as to the particular dances in which, for example, men, women and children may or must participate. Origins Mesolithic dancers at Bhimbetka Archeological evidence for early dance includes 9,year-old paintings in India at the Rock Shelters of Bhimbetkaand Egyptian tomb paintings depicting dancing figures, dated c.
It has been proposed that before the invention of written languages, dance was an important part of the oral and performance methods of passing stories down from generation to generation.
References to dance can be found in very early recorded history; Greek dance horos is referred to by PlatoAristotlePlutarch and Lucian. During the first millennium BCE in India, many texts were composed which attempted to codify aspects of daily life. Bharata Muni 's Natyashastra literally "the text of dramaturgy" is one of the earlier texts.
It mainly deals with drama, in which dance plays an important part in Indian culture. It categorizes dance into four types - secular, ritual, abstract, and, interpretive - and into four regional varieties. The text elaborates various hand-gestures mudras and classifies movements of the various limbs, steps and so on.
A strong continuous tradition of dance has since continued in India, through to modern times, where it continues to play a role in culture, ritual, and, notably, the Bollywood entertainment industry.
Many other contemporary dance forms can likewise be traced back to historicaltraditionalceremonialand ethnic dance. Dance and music Main article: Dance music Dancing girls in pop-concert, Sofia, Bulgaria. Dance is generally, though not exclusively, performed with the accompaniment of music and may or may not be performed in time to such music.
Some dance such as tap dance may provide its own audible accompaniment in place of or in addition to music. Many early forms of music and dance were created for each other and are frequently performed together.
Some musical genres have a parallel dance form such as baroque music and baroque dance ; other varieties of dance and music may share nomenclature but developed separately, such as classical music and classical ballet.
Dance and rhythm Rhythm and dance are deeply linked in history and practice. The American dancer Ted Shawn wrote; "The conception of rhythm which underlies all studies of the dance is something about which we could talk forever, and still not finish.
The basic pulse is roughly equal in duration to a simple step or gesture. A basic tango rhythm Dances generally have a characteristic tempo and rhythmic pattern.
The tango, for example, is usually danced in 2 4 time at approximately 66 beats per minute. The basic slow step, called a "slow", lasts for one beat, so that a full "right—left" step is equal to one 2 4 measure.
The basic forward and backward walk of the dance is so counted - "slow-slow" - while many additional figures are counted "slow - quick-quick.
However, since some such movements require more time in one phase than the other - such as the longer time required to lift a hammer than to strike - some dance rhythms fall equally naturally into triple metre.
Further, complex dances composed of a fixed sequence of steps always require phrases and melodies of a certain fixed length to accompany that sequence. Lululaund - The Dancing Girl painting and silk cloth. Baldrybefore p. The same idea, that dance arises from musical rhythm, is still found in renaissance Europe in the works of the dancing master Guglielmo Ebreo da Pesaro who speaks of dance as a physical movement that arises from and expresses inward, spiritual motion agreeing with the "measures and perfect concords of harmony" that fall upon the human ear,  while, earlier, Mechthild of Magdeburgseizing upon dance as a symbol of the holy life foreshadowed in Jesus' saying "I have piped and ye have not danced",  writes; I can not dance unless thou leadest.
Shawn concurs, stating that dance "was the first art of the human race, and the matrix out of which all other arts grew" and that even the " metre in our poetry today is a result of the accents necessitated by body movement, as the dancing and reciting were performed simultaneously"  - an assertion somewhat supported by the common use of the term "foot" to describe the fundamental rhythmic units of poetry.Therefore, a Dancing with the Stars message board will be full of people discussing Dancing with the Stars.
