According to her, dances were often performed in groups and this required coordination between team members.
"Dancing also keeps people fit as it is a form of exercise that involves the movement of limbs," said Rosmah in her speech at the opening of Tarian Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia Tourism Carnival at Dataran Merdeka yesterday.
Rosmah added that dancing was also an important product of tourism as it helped to promote Malaysia's diverse tradition and culture.
The Tarian Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia Tourism Carnival showcased dances, accompanied by the Malaysia Truly Asia tune, from six ethnic groups -- Malay, Chinese, Indian, Kadazan, Iban and Orang Asli, who performed the Sewang dance.
Organised by the Tourism Ministry, the Tarian Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia Tourism Carnival also succeeded in entering the Malaysia Book of Records for the second consecutive year.
The event successfully gathered 15,333 participants to perform in different dances. Last year, the carnival managed to attract 12,000 participants.
Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen was present at the event.
