The paper advocates the high position of the art of dance in the humanities. Since the dance is embedded in the human body, creating dance stands for creating human being. This makes up an authentic realm of the anthropological creativity. Thus one can say that dance is anthropological and anthropocentric. The stand is rooted in the Hellenic tradition, where paideutic formation of the society of free men included physical exercises, predominantly dance united with music and word. In his the human body was perceived as a god-like temple of the noblest human faculties that were the subject of constant training and melioration. The list of modern 'debtors' to the Greeks in this field is presented to instantiate the immortality of Hellenic educational ideas across millennia. Another aspect of the discourse is the interrelation between aesthetics and ethics through the training process in dance.
