Hey, Movers and Shakers!
If your favorite form of self-expression comes from moving your body and feeling the energy of a rhythm (or lack thereof), imagine yourself performing your art in front of an astonished audience! This could very well become a reality if you find the right summer camp! They’ll teach you a thing or two and give you the opportunity to work it and show off your talent.
Playing an important part in ceremonies, rituals, celebrations, and means of entertainment across the world, the art of Dance was first performed before the earliest civilizations ever existed and who knows how long before that? It’s a piece of who we are—something that’s built into us and part of our DNA. Dancing is in our blood.
More than just a fun thing to do at parties, Dance is an art form that people devote themselves to in body, mind, and spirit. Check out what people love so much about Dance! This is one art form that truly promotes healthy living! Dance comes with a laundry list of physical benefits:
