Abstract

In the world of dance, expression arises through the artistic organization of movement. Motions that recur frequently throughout a dance or scene, when combined with intermediate or linking steps, are collectively referred to as choreography, or the art of setting body motion to music. Dancers memorize, through careful thought and repetition, the sequence of steps that will be required not only to execute their own roles gracefully, but also to interact with the other dancers on stage.
