Rhythmic activities are any form of action in which an individual responds both emotionally and physically to any rhythmic accompaniment. Examples of these activities include dancing and aerobic exercises accompanied by music.
Elements of rhythm directly affect the performance of any rhythmic action. The underlying beats are responsible for the rhythmical sequence and determine the signature of the movements. When these beats increase in tempo, the rhythmic activities are done with increased speed and vigor. In performance arts, rhythmic activities are the timing of events on a human scale involving both the silence and musical notes in the musical accompaniment.
