HISTORY of DANCE FACTS
Part one: If it’s true that the earliest humans developed about a million years ago, then, bodies moving to a beat—i.e., dancing—is many tens of thousands of years older than the dawn of recorded history around 4000 BC. Prehistoric humans banged on sticks, stones and animal skins while chanting and gyrating to the rhythms. These seem to be the oldest forms of human artistic expression—Music and Movement—creating and dancing to rhythmic beats.
Part two: The fact that every culture around the world developed its own music and dance makes them the most essential, primal and universal art forms. The question is which was first, music or dancing? Most would say the music, because without the sounds people probably wouldn’t move. But, the opposite might also be true, that human beings just naturally wanted to wiggle their bodies, so they used rhythmic beating and chants to backbone their creative movements! It was probably like most things, though, a combination of both!
