Dance is a creative activity that uses movement with imagination through the processes of composing, performing and appreciating. Dance provides unique learning opportunities within schools in that it is a vehicle for young people to physically express and communicate their ideas, identity and culture, and their understanding about themselves, others and the society in which they live. Dance can contribute to students’ physical, aesthetic, artistic, creative, cultural and social development, and can also play an important role in promoting physical and emotional health and well-being.
