Brief Discussion on the Significance of Music in Dance Creation



Music and dance are destined to be artistic twins from their birth. Dance is a comprehensive art and music is its most important part among the numerous forms of related sister arts. During dancing creation, music is the most influential element so success or failure of dance works is related to the musicianship. Therefore, dance creators should lay importance to the creation or selection of dance music and endeavor to enhance their musicianship so that they can transmit the most profound connotation of dance works to the audience.
