A sequence of steps and movements that match the speed and rhythm of a piece of music. It developed from a ritual and a tradition into a form of social gathering. It varies a lot from slow to fast, from simple to complicated, and from casual to a concert performance. It also always evolves, it never stops and it never ends. It can only end if you end it. The beauty of it not only in how graceful or how free your body can look and feel, it's also amazing how it allows to express emotion. It's an art of your body; it is whatever you want it to be.
