Ballet

Ballet is a highly technical form of dance with its own vocabulary based on French terminology. It is the most beautiful and graceful of all dance styles and is the foundation of technique used in many other dance genres. 

Ballet dancers must be highly trained and disciplined, but their hard work and dedication is evident in their ability to glide effortlessly across a stage.

Modern

A high energy dance style. Modern dance is a rhythmic dance style which orginiated in America before travelling to the rest of the world.

Often seen on the stages of musical productions, the style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps and turns which all need strength and flexibility.

Tap

The dancer uses their feet to strike the floor beating out different rhythms, with the dancers wearing tap shoes which have metal plates on the toe and heel to give the distinctive sound.

Tap dance is a theatrical art form often seen on stage in musicals.

Jazz

Jazz is lively, energetic and creatively diverse, combining styles and techniques from a variety of popular dance forms.  

Jazz is the type of dance you would expect to see in a music video, fancy footwork, quick turns, body isolations,  building on strength, flexibility and stamina.
