In some cultures for example people dress up in costumes, paint different objects on their body, etc. Attending the Sacramento State S/Bad concert I was introduced to a unique form of dancing, something I wouldn’t normally go to see. It got me very interested and I saw how much effort and power it takes to perform a successful dance concert.
