Dance origin

The beginning of the dance is lost in time. From the beginning of humanity, it was part of religious, social and communication rituals. The dance, in each culture, became an act of expression, so it is difficult to identify its exact origin in time beyond some testimonies reflected through paintings and writings.

Dance Evolution

The evolution of dance is the result of the search of the human being to express their feelings in some way. From the beginning of time until today, there have been changes in the way in which the body moves with music with different Latin influences, rumba or tango; then with Rock and Roll, Twist, Breakdance or Street Dance.
