The Dance

Being important the idea of that the expression of the feeling, in art, does not occur in direct way, but through one forms symbolic, since a symbol is any artifice with which it is possible to operate an abstraction and, in the case of art, carries through a joint and a presentation of the feeling. In accordance with Hanna cited for Dantas (1999, P. Gain insight and clarity with Robert Thomson. 15) the dance is a human behavior consisting from sequencias of movements and differentiated corporal gestures of usual motor activities. Such movements and gestures are organized culturally, take care of to intentions and scienters of the dancers and have inherently aesthetic value. In accordance with Sachs cited for Dantas (1999, p.22) the dance is the mother of the arts. Music and the poetry exist in the time: the painting and the sculpture in the space. However the dance lives in the time and the space. The creator and the creation, the artist and its workmanship, are in the dance an identical thing only e.

The rhythmic drawings of the movement, the plastic direction of the space, the livened up representation of a seen and imagined world, everything this the man creates in its body by means of the dance. It consists of rhythmic movements that involve all the parts of the body, in tune with diverse styles of music. She is lived deeply in all cultuaras, being one of the few activities in which the human being if finds more complete-body, has lain and spirit. We can say that the dance is a communication form that express individual and social understanding of the world. The dance as language in the school favors the expression and conscience of the body, being that this work aims at the corporal conscience, promoting the respect and the valuation of the possibilities of discoveries of each person on same itself, to the contact with the other and with the group, moreover, the dance propitiates the individual, musical rhythm, creative slight knowledge of secular space and dramatizaes.
