I throughly agree with this idea that dancing plays an important role in a culture. Through dancing, we can understand many things. Maybe it can tell a story, maybe it can help us learn a custom, maybe it can let us know a kind of ceremony.
Dancing can help us learn a custom. For example, there are many minorities in China that would like to use dance and song to express their feelings. From their costumes to their dance posture, we can learn which minority they come from and what they extol and what they hate. So, we can understand them without going to their own places. Sometimes, dancing tells a wonderful story. I remember that I once watch a dance containing a sensentional affection story. Dancers sincerely express protagonists` distress because they cannot marry through their faces and their posture. Many people in the theater weeped.
In the end, dancing sometimes let me know a kind of ceremony. In the past, people would use special dance in certain ceremony such as beging rain and so on. For example, In a native India tribe, there is a kind of war-award dance. It was danced at special time that troops won voctory in the war.
From what has been discussed, I again express my opion that dancing really plays an important role in many aspects of a culture.
