中国古典舞（Chinese classical dance），起源于中国古代，历史悠久，博大精深，它融合了许多武术、戏曲中的动作和造型，特别注重眼睛在表演中的作用，强调呼吸的配合，富有韵律感和造型感，独有的东方式的刚柔并济的美感，令人陶醉。中国古典舞主要包括身韵、身法和技巧。身韵是中国古典舞的内涵，每个舞蹈的韵味不同，两个人跳同样动作，韵味都不同。身法则是指舞姿还有动作。根植于中国传统文化沃土的古典舞蹈非常强调 “形神兼备，身心互融，内外统一”的身韵。神韵是中国古典舞的灵魂。神在中而形于外，“以神领形，以形传神”的意念情感造化了身韵的真正内涵。
Dilligence, more practice and focus.
