Dance is part of the 7 fine arts due to the use of vigorous movements of the body to the beat of music, and this serves as one of the most aesthetic means of expression that we can enjoy. Students continue to learn about safe practices in the arts and in their interactions with other artists.
In the 17th and 18th centuries, the entirety of human knowledge was consolidated into a series of volumes known as the encyclopedia” which translates as complete instruction or complete knowledge.” Almost every major culture over the past 2,000 years has adopted the seven liberal arts.
The liberal arts also were emphasized heavily in Hellenistic Greece, described as the enkuklios paideia” or education in a circle.” They were divided into four scientific arts—music, arithmetic, geometry, and astronomy, and three humanities—grammar, logic, and rhetoric.
