People Dancing | Dancers

Dancing is a form of performance art where the movement of the body is purposefully choreographed in specific sequences and actions. Performed under a large range of circumstances and with varied intentions, dancing is most commonly used for social, competitive, ceremonial, sacred, theatrical, or martial functions. Dance, and the trained movements associated with specific dance styles such as ballet, jazz, ballroom, tap, hip-hop, and contemporary dance, has origins that are often deeply integrated with the social and cultural histories and stories around the world. While dancing is often naturally paired with musical accompaniment, dance can be performed separately and may often even create its own form of audio—as is the case with tap dancing.

How many calories does dancing burn?

Calories burning while dancing depends greatly on the type of dance, as well other factors such as fitness level and weight. For example, a 140 pound person salsa dancing for one hour may burn around 405 calories. Swing dancing for one hour can result in burning from 300-500 calories in one hour.

How do you get better at dancing?

To get better at dancing start by stretching every morning. Practicing muscle memory by repeating the same technique, skill, or routine will further aid in the advancement of dancing. Reviewing old pieces and watching dance videos will also help. Eating healthier and training in spare time will help to condition the body to dance longer, stronger, and better.

What is ballroom dancing?

Ballroom dancing is a social and competitive type of partner dance enjoyed around the world. Broadly, ballroom dancing can refer to any type of partner dancing. The term has been recently been specific to the five International Standard and five International Latin style dances.

Breakdancing | Breaking - Male Dancers

Breakdancing is a media constructed term to refer to b-boying or breaking, which is a form of street dancing invented in the United States by Black and Puerto Rican youth in the 1970s. Originally coined as b-boying, the term breakdancing was created by the media after the dance form began to gain popularity. Breaking has a wide range of variety, but typically consists of four different moves: toprock, downrock, power moves, and freezes. B-boys used to have a style defined by their city, but with the spread of the internet and YouTube videos being watched in the scene individual styles have lost definition.
