Dance prevailed and prevails in the cultural tradition of all human beings and society. For the long history of the mankind it changed, reflecting the cultural development. There exists huge multiple variety of styles and forms of dance: Dances and religion exists in a difficult interrelation. Ball (paired) dances; Latino-American dances are banned in the Muslim countries - it is treated as sin, indecency. Orthodox Christians prohibited waltz dance, Tango and others. Many religions ban erotic dances, stripteases, "dirty dances" in the Hinduism The god Shiva is the king of dances. More important: our whole world, Whole universe This, in the presentation of the Hinduism, it is the dancing material. Compare: in the materialism "The universe A moving material". A unique phenomenon of the dance has emerged from the requirements of the man to express his emotional play, sense of involvement in the surrounding world. With out any mathematical education, man felt, that all, which exists in time, is dependant on rhythmic objective laws. In alive or not alive in the environment the processes are rhythmic and periodic. The rhythm is ontological characteristic. It has to be naturally received that \cosmos is majestic, harmonious, rhythmically organized. Forcing your body to pulsate in coordination with the cosmic rhythms, human being felt their existence in the structure of the world's existence. The primitive dance was developed till the music and the existence of a original under rhythm simple beating instruments. The rhythmical organized body movements shows firm influence on the subconscious, and then under consciousness. This property of the dance is used in the dance therapy now a day will go away with the roots into the old ages of the ritual dancing. The rhythm is related with the muscle reactivity of the man. The slave traders were aware of this, transporting huge quantities of black slaves in the lower holds of the ships: Dances which were provoked by the beating instruments, made the periodical wave which arose among the slaves. The war ritual dances among the ancient people took place in a potentially rhythmic manner. This brought the participants of the dancing activity and the audience together into a single rhythmic pulse, which released huge quantity of energy, necessary in the wars. It is noticed long back, that group rhythmical body movements brings for the appearance of a mystic sense of relationship, unity of the people with one another. That's why many people have dances in their history, constructed according to the circular rule, ring dances, spinning around the shoulders of one another with hands or simply holding their hands. Dancing gave the energy required for experiencing the most important events of life. Dancing had significant ritual character, whether it was a part of the religious faith, whether served as a means of communication (daily dances and festival dances), whether it was a magical exorcism-dance and so on. But it was strictly lined-up.
