dance around the world

People all over the world love to dance, but they don’t dance the same way. Many have dances that are special to their people or their country. Which of these dances would you like to try? The jingle dress dance is named for the metal cones sewn on the dancer’s dress. It was first danced by women in the Ojibwe tribe around a hundred years ago. Today other Native American and First Nations dancers also perform it. Ballet folklórico is a mix of many kinds of traditional Mexican dances. At first the name was used for one specific dance group in Mexico. Now thousands of groups in Latin America and the United States learn and perform these dances.

put on your dancing shoes

Special shoes won’t make you a better dancer. But they might make getting the right moves easier. Ballet dancers of all ages, both boys and girls, wear soft ballet slippers. But usually only girls wear pointe shoes. Pointe shoes have a stiff box at the toe end that lets a ballerina dance on the tips of her toes. Girls must wait until they’re old enough, though. It takes a lot of strength and training to dance on pointe. Tap shoes have metal plates attached to their soles. Before taps were invented, dancers sometimes hammered coins or nails onto their shoes to get a tapping sound. Dance sneakers might look like regular sneakers, but they’re usually extra bendy. Plus, the soles on the bottoms of the shoes are made to be grippy enough so…

gotta dance

The chicken dance, the bunny hop, the foxtrot, the worm—lots of dances are named for animals. But do animals really dance? Honeybees do what scientists call a waggle dance. But the bees aren’t dancing for fun. They’re reporting news. Honeybees need to collect lots of sweet nectar from flowers to make honey. A bee who finds a good flower rushes back to the hive to tell all the other bees. The bee can’t talk. So she dances! The other bees pay close attention. The dance tells them how far away the flower is and in which direction. Then they fly off to find the flower themselves. 1. Wiggle and waggle your body and wings. Dance in a line pointing toward your flower. The longer the line, the farther away the flower. 2. Circle to the…

miss lina's ballerinas

In a cozy white house, in the town of Messina, eight little girls studied dance with Miss Lina. Christina, Edwina, Sabrina, Justina, Katrina, Bettina, Marina, and Nina. In pink head to toe, they practiced all day—plié, relevé, pirouette, and jeté. They danced doing math. They danced while they read. And after their supper, they danced into bed.

Miss Lina announced, in her elegant way, “A new ballerina will join us today. This is Regina. Her…
