Dance History

From the earliest moments of known human history, dance accompanied ancient rituals, spiritual gatherings and social events. As a conduit of trance, spiritual force, pleasure, expression, performance and interaction, dance became infused into our nature from the earliest moments of our existence - from the moment when first African tribes covered themselves in war-paint to the to the spreading of music and dance across all four corners of the world. Without a doubt, dancing remains one of the most expressive forms of communications that we know.

The earliest history of human dance is a continuing mystery. From the evidence of illustrated ceramic fragments, some archaeologists have speculated that dance originated some 5,000 to 9,000 years ago in early agricultural cultures located in a swath running from modern Pakistan to the Danube basin. Others, however, have expressed caution regarding the reconstruction of social behavior from such sources. Speculation aside, specific knowledge of prehistoric dances is lacking, and thus many experts have extrapolated dance history from the preserved ritual dances of various preliterate societies.

About dance

Dance squads emphasize precise, motions along with technical dance skills (such as jumps, turns, and leaps). Their routines encompass various styles of dance including the more usually incorporated hip hop , jazz , lyrical, and kickline styles, to the more unusually used styles like disco, rock and roll, and gospel. A key feature of the dance is the ability to change formations very smoothly.


Many dance squads both in high school require everyone to attend a tryout. These are typically held in the spring or early summer, before most sports begin. There are many different aspects of a tryout. The first thing many tryouts do is go through basic dance techniques that will be used during the season. These include but are not limited to toe touches, fouetté turn combinations and switch leaps. Other things that are many times included in a dance team tryout is the expectation that you can quickly master multiple short routines in different styles. Depending on what type of dance team the tryout is for will depend on what styles of dance you must know.

Modern Dance

Modern dance is a style of western concert dance which began loosely in the late 19th century and early 20th-century. Modern dance, which has birthplaces in the United States as well as Germany, was a direct response to ballet as the primary form of concert dance. Modern dance refused aspects of classical ballet and broke away from codified movements and balletic narrative structures.

Dance Camp is one of the most exciting times of the year. At camp, you will have the opportunity to learn choreography, bond with your team, practice technique, and much more. All of the planned activities are a lot of fun, and camp is a great way to kick-off the season with your team.

Some teams choose to go to a dance camp is held on a college campus or in a hotel setting. Some teams choose to have instructors come to them and host the camp at their own school.

The main reason why dance teams attend camp differs from team to team. Your team may attend camp to gain as much choreography as possible to take home and perform at football and basketball games. Another team may attend camp to focus on team building and team bonding. Whatever your reason is, you can be sure that camp will be a fun and exciting experience for you and your team.


Depending on how often your team performs or competes will probably determine how often your team will practice. Quality practices usually produce quality performances. So whether you practice twice a week or five times a week, always give 110% when you are at practice.

Most teams have mandatory practices to ensure that the team performs well as a whole. However, not every dance team will run practice in the same way. Usually dance team practices will include time for stretching, conditioning/aerobic warm-up, technique combinations, and routine review.
If your team is a nationally competitive team, be prepared for some strenuous practices as the big competition approaches. Don’t let this make you nervous though. Strenuous practices do not have to be stressful practices!
