The oldest records of organised dance and of professional female dancers come from Egypt.
In the Indian subcontinent too, there is early evidence of dancing women, most notably a bronze statuette from Mohenjo-daro in the Indus Valley dating from around 2500 BC
There are many examples of ancient Greek art from the 6th and 5th centuries BC depicting dancing women.
In China too there is a long recorded history of women dancers since the Zhou Dynasty (c. 1046–256 BC) reaching a peak in the Tang Dynasty (618–907 AD)
