Why is timing in dance so important?

because without timing everyone who is dancing would be doing the steps and dance moves at different times! For example: if "group 1" in the dance class was suppose to turn on 1, "group 2" was suppose to turn on 2, " group 3" was suppose to turn on 3, and group 4 was suppose to turn on 4, if you were counting " 1, 2, 3, 4 1, 2, 3, 4" , if there was timing everyone would be turning randomly!

Hope this helps !
