     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.
