Dance Performance Lesson Plan

Dance and human civilization bonded together since the ancient times. With each passing century, dance became a more important tool for maintaining our health, preserving social interactions, and celebrating the events and gods. Many dances were performed as a way to bond and communicate. In the early periods of time, dances were performed as part of large events such as ceremonies and festivals.

Since dance is not a physical artifact that can be examined, historians find it difficult to identify when exactly dance was invented.
