Dancing could be described as a series of movements used to express feelings, sensations or ideas. Virtually all known human cultures anywhere on the planet have left records of the practice of some kind of dance.

The most primitive societies generally associated their dances to the request of good harvests to the gods, rituals of gratitude or simple veneration. With the development of cultures, movements were perfected through training and showed greater complexity.

With urbanization, people began to dance in small groups, in the squares, or in parties, seeking to celebrate, to communicate something or just for entertainment.
