The Express English team

Lots of children in the UK have dance lessons (especially girls). One man says he's never had lessons, but wishes he had.

We also met some professional dancers, who do music videos and live shows.

And how does dancing make us feel? One woman feels alive when she dances, and in her own little world. And the man who only dances in the shower? We guess he must feel shy when he dances.

Did you know?

Fact

The world's largest bhangra dance was in Ontario, Canada, on 31 August 2008, when 763 people performed this Punjabi dance together.

Language tip

To 'make a song and dance' about something means you're making a big fuss.

Cultural tip

At a British wedding, the couple usually have the 'first dance' together. The couple choose significant music for them, usually a romantic pop song like Amazed by Lonestar or Everything I Do by Bryan Adams.
