In our never-ending search of fun dance facts, we decided to compile a little list of some of the more interesting we’ve found lately for your reading pleasure. We’ve got quite the list going when you add these to all the others!
- Unlicensed dancing in public is illegal in Sweden including ‘illegally moving your feet to music’.
- A three-hour ballet performance is roughly equivalent to two 90-minute soccer games back to back or running 18 miles.
- Did you know that dancers have better than average peripheral vision? Head angles are widely used in dance, so dancers have to use their eyes if they want to look to the side, without turning their heads.
- 90% of ballet dancers have clicking hips.
- Only men danced in the ballets for the first one hundred years
