Dance Philosophy My definition or philosophy of dance is not a very complex one even though it is well thought out in my mind. Dance is an art performed by either individuals or groups of humans. The body is used to express a purpose, inner feeling, emotion, idea, or experience. It can be used for therapy too. Dance can also be used to perform social, ritual, entertainment, or other performances. The movement is normally performed to either live or recorded music, but can also be to only human breath or rhythm. It is an outward expression of things felt on the inside of the body. People's definitions of dance are usually very similar with just slight differences. Most feel similarly about it and what it is. Why isn't there just one definition? Why do people still have slightly different philosophies? The answer is easy. Everyone feels slightly different about what dance is and have their individual philosophies from their own personal experiences that influence what dance means to them. Somebody who uses dance as a ritual may feel very differently about it then someone who does it for therapy.My definition and philosophy of dance is unique. Explanation is needed in order to understand why this is my philosophy. I dance as a way to express my emotions, overcome posttraumatic stress disorder, challenge myself to be better, bring joy to others, and most importantly because it's my passion. Dancers have the unique ability to dance what we feel. Our emotions do not need to
