Across time and space people have used dance as a form of cultural expression and entertainment. Dancing comes in a variety of forms and styles, from ballet to line dancing to tap dance to various partner dances. Music provides the tune and tempo to which people move, glide, and sway across the floor. Music can also have lyrics that feature dance in social settings. The Frances G. Spencer Collection of American Popular Sheet Music at Baylor University has about 30,000 titles. This exhibit highlights 25 pieces related to dance in either the title or the song lyrics.
