Dance Styles:

Ballet:

A classical dance form demanding grace and precision and employing formalized steps and gestures set in intricate, flowing patterns to create expression through movement.

Tap:

A type of dance characterised by using the sounds of metal taps affixed to the heel and toe of shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion, coupled with both characteristic and interpretative body movements.

Modern/Jazz:

A dance style that focuses on a dancer's own interpretation of the music. It evolved from early African American dances. It now incorporates unique moves, elaborate footwork, large leaps and turns bringing an energetic and entertaining combination. It is often described as the style of dance you would expect to see on Broadway.

Acrobatics:

A style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. It is defined by its athletic character, its unique choreography, which seamlessly blends dance and acrobatics, and its use of acrobatics in a dance context.

Contemporary:

Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements.

 

Lyrical:

A style that combines ballet and jazz dancing techniques. It is performed to music with lyrics so that it inspires expression of strong emotions the choreographer feels from the lyrics of the song. This style concentrates on an individual approach and expressiveness of such emotions as love, joy, hurt, or anger.

Musical Theatre:

Musical theatre is a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting and dance
