Dance is organized movement where people express themselves for different reasons to enjoy the body’s energies and messages joined with the spirit and to share this with others. Dance is a universal phenomenon, and takes many different forms. Dance as an art form is a particular response through thought and movement, where an individual organizes space, time, and force to express their response to the world.

Dr. Naima Prevots, Professor Emerita American University, has been defining dance for many years, in her various roles as performer, choreographer, critic, educator and administrator.
