Dance vs. Movement?

What would you consider the difference between dance and movement...even synchronized movement?

One might say expressing with music, but one can certainly dance without any music, right?

What do you think?


  1. To me dance is the expresion of the soul through movement. Just like when I see my Dad paint: The Dancer creates the masterpiece, the Dance itself is the canvas and the Movement is the brush strokes. Dance is movement with a purpose of expression. No, one does not need music to dance and transmit the "message". I don't know if that makes any sense, my mind wanders a lot!

  2. Wait! I meant the Movement is the canvas and the Dance is the brush strokes. My mind is playing with me! (movement alone is not necessarily dance)



On this blog I share my personal posts about cooking and knitting, travel and other musings; while I will blog about dance-specific topics over on the Deep Roots Dance blog:

I hope you will enjoy both my sites. Thanks for visiting!
