An Overview Of Dance Styles: Part 1
Is it your first time taking a class? Did your friend show you their favorite style, but you’re not sure if that’s the one you want to do? Well, we got you covered! Today, we’re going to give you a brief overview of some styles of dance (in case you don’t have time to try them all).
Chances are, you’ve heard of this one before. If you are dedicated enough, you might even be able to make it en pointe! Of course, there are different types of ballet, so make sure you do your research if you have a particular type in mind and want to know if it's available at a studio near you.
This style is less strict. However, it does include elements of jazz, ballet, and modern! If you want a style with fewer rules, we would recommend this one.
Did you know jazz came from Africa? This style quickly became popular in America. Simply put, jazz is dance movements to jazz accompaniment.
This style can be a little noisy (especially if people hit the wrong beats). The shoes are designed to make “taps” on the floor in a rhythmic way.
Not to be confused with contemporary dance, this style comes from classical ballet. Well, minus the restrictions so dancers can use emotions and interpretation.
Well, did you learn something new? And if these styles don’t interest you, don’t worry, we’re just getting started! What other styles do you want an overview of? And make sure to follow our social media @more_than_dancers for more relatable dance content.
