Agree/Disagree: Dancing plays an important role in a culture

Hello Kitosdad. Thanks for reviewing my essay in advance.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Dancing plays an important role in a culture. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

I totally agree with the fact that dancing plays a crucial role in a culture. My reasons and examples listed below will strengthen my point of view.

In the first place, dancing is more than the movements of the body. It is not only a set of rules or techniques but an art which cannot be expressed in words. Dancing helps us to properly display our emotions and feelings, such as happiness and sadness; it is also a way to create feelings and responses in the viewers. To put the discussion into a wider context, by watching African dance we can get to know more about their ways of lives and customs. For example, the Africans perform a type of dance called as” dance of welcome”, which is a show of respect and pleasure to visitors; Therefore, this can be a sign to show their hospitality.

Secondly, our culture can be changed through (the) dances performed in other parts of the world. The heart and the soul of dance is music. As a result, if a person tries to dance Tango or Flamenco, he/she needs to listen to that type of music. To put the discussion into a wider context, consider a person from America who usually dances Hip-Hop. After sometime, he starts practicing another type of dance, like Flamenco. It is obvious that this person should listen to more Spanish music, change his mind, and movements of his body into new forms which are not originally his. As a result, this can influence on his way of thinking, adapting to a new culture, and understanding the people around the world.

To put all in a nutshell, based on the above discussion, dancing has a great impact on a culture, since it is a way to portray the feelings, emotions, and customs of a country.
