Why do humans dance?

Did you know that human babies can hear music and automatically start moving to the beat from about 5 months? We don’t need to be taught to dance, we dance automatically.

Everybody can dance, but why?

Dancing goes back thousands of years. It was a means to bond & communicate, before human language evolved there was movement and rhythm. Dance is used to celebrate or console. Humans use dance as a therapy in troubled times.

But there is also a chemical reaction when we dance. Our bodies are naturally trying to heal us all the time. When we dance we produce higher levels of serotonin – the happy hormone, so dance makes us feel good and lifts our mood.
