Symmetry In Dancing

Shape is one of the elements of dancing. It refers to the movements that a dancer makes. It has 3 concepts which are: Levels, Symmetry and Assymetry, and Scale. Since we are just concerned about symmetry, I won’t discuss the other two concepts.

These are the two types of symmetry in dancing:
1) Symmetric position – the position of the right side of the body is the same with the left side
2) Symmetric sequence – the movement made by the right side of the body is mirrored by the left side (e.g. arm wave)
