Dance studios

Dance outperforms every other activity in this book in terms of diversification and change. It is at once joined up by its universality and fragmented by its geographies, cultures and histories. Its records go back further than anything else in the book – beyond the Tombs of the Pharaohs circa 3000bc to the Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka, Central India, circa 9000 bc (where dance is portrayed in Stone Age cave paintings).
