Children learn dance through play and social activities, but adults often learn dance as a cultural activity or for exercise. Dance is a way of learning about movement and rhythm that helps adults improve their physical health. It also offers a healthy social outlet that is fun for children and adults alike.
An adult might have difficulty learning to dance at school, but they can practice on their own time at home with family members or friends who are already familiar with the basics of dances. This way, they can still enjoy what dance has to offer without having to worry about getting laughed at by peers or having some other form of embarrassment happen as a result of their lack of knowledge on the subject.Dance is a form of expression that helps people express themselves and take in the world around them. For children, dance helps them to feel more confident and happy. For adults, dance can help with stress relief and provide a sense of well-being. The benefits of dance for these groups are apparent and similar in many ways. However, society’s views on what is “acceptable” when it comes to dance vary greatly among these groups.
When considering the subjectivity behind what constitutes „acceptable” when it comes to children’s or adults’ dancing, we must also consider the context in which such dances are performed. As such, we’ll be taking a look at different contexts for children’s and adults’ dancing in order to analyze their benefits and limitations for each group respectively: school dances.
