Ritual as Art
The core of dancing and the neuromuscular activity of the human body combine to create one of the vehicles by which sentience becomes visible where emotional states express themselves in movements. Expressiveness and something which is expressed are usually the main concerns of art. These did not exist until they were made implicit in ritual. The major issues of choreographers in the 1960s and 1970s is also discussed to illustrate the dramatic narrative of dance which put too much stress on the dance itself. This chapter also features different forms of dance, and the clear definition that provides what dance expresses. Gestures of drama inside every dance are presented as well which give expressivity and technique in ways somewhat similar to the activities described in dance.
