Dance is peculiarly adapted to the purposes of education. It serves all the ends of education - it helps to develop the body, to cultivate the love and appreciation of beauty, to stimulate the imagination and challenge the intellect, to deepen and refine the emotional life, and to broaden the social capacities of the individual that he or she may at once profit from and serve the greater world without.
