A Variety of Dance Styles for a Variety of Dancers
Engaging in multiple styles of dance can help unlock understanding of how the body moves and translates movement and choreography. Styles that emphasize control such as ballet and modern build a greater understanding of body awareness, while styles that emphasize rhythm like jazz, hip hop, and tap build a greater understanding of musicality. All techniques support each other.
