Dancers don't need wings to fly..
Dance is a performing art form consisting of purposefully selected sequences of human movement. Dance can be categorized and described by its choreography by its repertoire of movements or by its historical period or place of origin.
For us here at the Gajera International School, (Katargam) Pri-Primary Section.
Dance is more than exploring of different ways to make a shape or learning a series of steps to music; it is a way of moving that uses the body as an instrument of expression and communication. Through dance, students learn teamwork, focus, and improvisational skills.. Dance awakens new perceptions in children which help them learn and think in new ways.
Dancing bolsters physical and mental health by helping to prevent falls, improve posture and flexibility, lift mood and ease anxiety. It's also a fun activity that sharpens the mind, increases aerobic power and strength, builds social bonds, and can reduce pain and stiffness.
