Dancing: the vertical expression

On with the dance! let joy be unconfined; No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.

Merengue

Light quirks of music, broken and uneven,Make the soul dance upon a jig to Heav'n.

Bollywood Masala

Dancing is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of the arts, because it is not mere translation or abstraction from life; it is life itself.

Street Dance

Movement never lies. It is a barometer telling the state of the soul's weather to all who can read it.

Dancing is just discovery

They who love dancing too much seem to have more brains in their feet than in their head.

Street dance, also called vernacular dance is an umbrella term, used to describe dance styles that evolved outside of dance studios in everyday spaces such as streets, school yards and nightclubs. They are often improvisational and social in nature, encouraging interaction and contact with spectators and the other dancers. Some examples include house dance that originated in Chicago and tecktonik which originated in France.

Street dance is also commonly used to identify the many hip-hop and funk dance styles that began appearing in the United States in the 1970s and are still alive and evolving within hip-hop culture today. These styles include breaking, popping, locking.

All of these dances are popular as a form of physical exercise, an art form, and for competition. They are today practiced both at dance studios and other spaces. Some schools use street dance as a form of physical education.
