The histories of the different branches of dance are very much interconnected. I have been dancing since I was eight years old, and it is one of my many passions. In the different sections of this site, you will at times find very similar information because the histories connect. I don't claim to have comprehensive knowledge, but I can take you through the basics of each branch. This site is here to provide basic dance history information, and hopefully to spark some interest in the subject. One history I do not cover is West African dance; it is a great style, but I do not have much knowledge of its history. Look around and enjoy.
