There is something about dance, whether it is choreographed or free style that really invigorates and integrates mind, body and soul. Historically, dance has been used in all cultures for celebration, entertainment and rituals. Records of dance have been found in ancient Egyptian tomb paintings dating back to 3300 BC.
