How dancing expresses emotions?
Face and Body Movements – Understand them
Facial expressions form the heart of our Indian classical dance forms. And dance forms like contemporary, hip- hop, jazz, salsa and the other western ones focus majorly on hand and body movements. Incorporate the aggression to make these dance styles more passionate. Understand the dance styles. And the movements that play a pivotal role in each. Improvise on the movements that express the feeling. And help to bring the emotions while dancing.
Ballet demands calm positioning. Focuses on both facial and body movements.

Express the emotions in dance through different body parts. Follow the golden rule ‘Let the movement tell the story’.
Connect with Music
Concentrate on dance and emotions. Listen to and feel the music. And to emote it better – imagine a situation, a happy one if the song is upbeat. To dance on a sad musical piece think of a mishap or a tragic event from past or relate to the essence of the song like separation, death, loss etc.
Smile if it is a cheerful music and bring more drama to face if it is a serious one. Sing the lyrics of the song alongside, as this helps to bring forth the right emotions in dance too.
Dance from Within
Use your own, unique body language to exaggerate or abstract the dance piece. And project a sea of feelings, subtle moods, and emotions.
The moving body and dance steps felt and done from within, when performed justify the emotions. The audience too feels related and perceive the right set of emotions.
Know your Audience Well
Understand and give space to the audience. They may bring in their own know-how of the dance or come completely naïve – to have an exciting time. So while dancing bring out the emotions that are in tune with the mood and knowledge of the audience.
Allow them to carve out their own meaning of the movements and dance so performed. Give them a logical transition from one step to another, as seamless as reading through the pages of a book.
Dance is one of the most liberating and expressive art forms. Expressing emotions through dance is the only way to do it. So dance freely, whether to rhythms or beats or to the silent sound of heart. Just turn that attention inward and see how deeply you feel connected to the music and dance heartily.
Learn through to emote the dance beautifully. Enjoy it, and create the unique enthralling movements and emotions. Surprise yourself, smile – even cry out, but keep the spirit of dancing and emoting alive and going.
