Does dancing play an important role in a culture?
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Dancing plays an important role in a culture. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
这个题目乍看起来很不好写。同意这个观点(Dancing is really important in every culture.)。可以采取it depends 的策略。舞蹈的娱乐作用(as a important mean of entertainments)也是important role in a culture，所以种文化中都有其独特的舞蹈形式(dancing form)。原始社会(primitive society)时，舞蹈是非常重要的。庆祝(celebration; festival)，祈祷(pray)，宗教仪式(ritual) 等等活动中，舞蹈都是最主要的组成部分(one of the most important components)。随着社会的发展，宗教仪式(ritual)演变成了歌剧(opera)，舞蹈仍然是很重要的娱乐手段。时间进入21世纪，各种娱乐手段开始丰富起来，舞蹈尽管已经不是主流的(main)娱乐方式，但是仍然非常重要。某年的奥斯卡(Oscar)得主就是一个歌舞剧(musical drama)——芝加哥(Chicago).
There are a number of qualities that have always been present in cultures, recent or ancient. These qualities can be anything from art forms to culturally gained knowledge. These qualities make the culture unique, and allow the culture to offer something interesting to the world. Throughout history, dancing has always played such a role in cultures. This is because dance allows us to express emotion, preserve heritage, and entertain. Dancing has always held a high position in culture, as it is an excellent way of expressing emotion. Much like the painter using color to convey emotion, dancers can use their body as a tool to show the onlooker their happiness, sadness, pain, etc. Dancing is also an excellent method of retaining and preserving culture. Many cultures have dance as part of their ceremonies, whether the ceremony is religious or patriotic in form. For example, it is a widely practiced norm to have people dance out a glorious moment in battle. In religion, it is common for people to dance to appease the God or Gods. Because of this, dancing is an excellent way to maintain culture, and ensure that important moments of the past are not forgotten. In modern days, it is much more common for dancing to be seen as a form of entertainment. Dancing has become somewhat of a sport in some countries, for example, ballroom dancing is very popular in the United States. There are hundreds of bars and disco clubs all over China which focus on dancing. They provide disc jockeys, more commonly referred to as "D.J.s", and play loud, repetitive music which encourages the young people to dance. There are many different styles of dance, but all bring the dancer to have fun, and get a good workout at the same time.
