I am writing an essay on modern dance and almost finished with my dance essay. Now I stuck with writing the conclusion paragraph. I have already written one conclusion paragraph before based on my own skill but after reading my conclusion paragraph one of my close friends asked me to improve the conclusion paragraph. To learn on how to write a better conclusion paragraph I have gone through with many articles and resources related to writing the conclusion part but it is really confusing me. In some essay paper last paragraph is begin with the words “in conclusion” and in some papers they directly started with restating the thesis statement. I need to know which one is correct and which is not. I don’t want to lose marks for this. I also wanted to know about are there any limitations on sentences while writing the dance essay conclusion paragraph.
