Communication (Seeks to understand, interpret, and express thoughts, ideas, and emotions)
Dance is a form of communication. In the mines of South Africa, when workers were not permitted to speak with their families and fellow workers, they would communicate through slapping their boots and stomping their feet. From this need to communicate the dance form now known as gumboot dancing and step, came to be. Whether it be exchanging messages in a mine, or expressing intimate ideas and emotions on stage, dance has always been the universal form of communication.
