We Wanna Know: Is Dance Fitness Really Dance?


Many artists and scholars say that dance is movement, but it seems that not every movement is called dance. How/why does a movement become “dance”?

Bees communicate flower location using special moves. One bee ‘dances’, while other bees watch to learn the directions to a specific flower patch. Is this dance? Is dance a form of communication?

As nouns the difference between movement and dance is that movement is physical motion between points in space while dance is a sequence of rhythmic steps or movements usually, but not always, performed to music, for pleasure or as a form of social interaction.
