9. Eva Soltes: Dance as an evolving art form

WHAT’S IN THIS VIDEO: Dance as a performance art form has taken second place in popularity to music in part because of the way it is presented. Historically dance existed at many locations and events, but contemporary Western thought relegates modern dance to the stage and few places else. Modern dance has moved further toward a theatrical form rather than its traditional status as a ritual or folk art. A well executed dance is fun to watch, but even a not-so-well-done dance can be fun to do — that is if the participants aren’t too shy.
