Dancers can perform anywhere. But many dancers practice in a studio. A studio is an open space with a hard floor. Dancers listen to music and feel the beat. They move their bodies to match the beat. Some dancers make up their own moves. Others practice moves that a teacher shows them.

People often take classes to learn how to dance. Teachers show students how to stretch and count the beats of the music. Teachers also show how to do dance moves. Many dance classes have recitals at the end of the year. Students show off the dances they have learned.
