History of African Detail

An analysis of most of the dances of Africa shows us that they are generally rooted in ethnic, social or religious traditions. Since most of the history in Africa is passed orally, dance and music play an important role in story-telling and its sole purpose is not only entertainment.

Dance in Africa has been in existence and has been passed on for generations now. This is because it is not a separate art form but a part of everyday life. It communicates the culture and the background and since some of the dances communicate information from past generations, they contain “moral” messages such as how to live a harmonious community life.

The dance is based on the spoken language; therefore, emotions such as hatred, love, lust or courage can be expressed through the dance moves. Sometimes, there are separate dances for the sun, for the rain or a dance that is performed during marriages.

There may be different dances for different occasions and there may be different dances for different social groups. For instance, there are special dances for a clan, for men, for women, for the youth and so on.

Traditionally, most African villages had a “dance master” who was responsible for teaching the members of the tribe from a tender age. Improvisation was not allowed until the students mastered the dance exactly in the ways that was taught to them.

Dance trends influenced by African dance include:
  • The Charleston
  • Tap Dancing
  • The Lindy Hop
  • The Jitterbug
  • The Twist
  • Jazz dance
  • Hip hop
  • Crunking

history

Acharuli is one of the many Georgian folk dances and has originated in Achara, a southern region of Georgia. The dance steps are not very difficult and are explicit, performed by both men and women. The display is flirtatious and playful but soft enough. The depiction of the relationship between men and women is colloquial and light hearted. Acharuli stands apart from other dance forms because of the beauteous costumes with vibrant colors. It inculcates cheerfulness in the performers as well as the audience.
