There isn’t that much that we know about our history as humans, but we know this: For as long as we’ve eaten and drunk, talked and walked, we danced. The oldest proof of the existence of dancing comes from the 9000-year-old cave paintings in India and the 6000-year-old tomb paintings in Egypt. Transmitting cultures, time and gender, dancing has always been one of the main forms humans express themselves. It’s inherent, yes, but dancing is a sophisticated art form, which is why we’ve created a guide for you to kickstart your dancing journey.
