The article is devoted to aesthetic nature of the philosophy of dance as a rapidly developing area of studying. The aesthetic issues of choreographies in the cognitive context have not been properly studied. The mathematical component of the classical ballet, which is shown through the internal patterns of the expressiveness of the different types of dance movements in the system of artistic thinking, is analyzed in a wide range of the philosophical problems of art of dancing. The substantial triad of structure of dance is considered at the level of philosophical research. In it, along with static and dynamic forms of dance, the third component, which reflects physicality, related to the “sense of movement” or the perception of information through body movements is added to the binary structure of dance.
