1 1. Question Many of the movements learned and performed by dancers have a long history and have been performed by dancers all over the world. Some of these terms are not written in English, but in French. By learning the correct terminology of each dance movement, they will be easier to execute and it will be easier for a choreographer to direct an individual dancer or a group. It is important for dancer’s to learn the name of these movements and how to perform them. How can learning the correct terminology and technique of dance movements make you a stronger, better dancer? 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Image Source: World BookWorld Book
