Contemporary dance combines elements from various dance genres, including classical ballet, jazz, and modern dance. Contemporary dancers often use improvisation to create original movements set to dynamic music or routines. This expression values creativity, innovation, and an emotional connection with the audience.


Jazz dance is an energetic, vibrant, and exciting form of dance. It combines elements from various styles such as classical ballet, African and modern jazz. Jazz dancing often features improvisation, meaning dancers can create their moves while following the music and directions their instructors give.

Hip Hop / Break

Hip Hop dance is an energetic street-style dance that is heavily influenced by hip-hop culture. It combines elements of breaking, funk styles, and house dancing with popping and locking, isolations, and body waving to create a unique movement style. Hip Hop dancers often have their signature moves and are recognized for their creative flow.


Acro dance, also known as acrobatic dance, is a style of performance that combines the grace and beauty of classical ballet with the strength and agility of acrobatics. It typically involves physical feats such as lifts, balances, contortions, and other gymnastics-type skills.



Cheer dance, also known as cheerleading or spirit-dancing, is a type of performance art that combines elements of dancing, acrobatics, and gymnastics with complex arm and leg movements. It involves tumbling, stunting, and vocal cheers to create an energizing atmosphere and motivate audiences.

Tap / Clog

Tap and clog dance is a rhythmic style of dancing that uses the percussive sound of metal-soled shoes to create music. This type of dance dates back centuries and has evolved from traditional folk dances in various parts of Europe. Tap dancers use the taps on their shoes to make different sounds depending on how they strike the floor, while clog dancers use the wooden soles of their shoes to create distinct rhythms.


Character dance is a theatrical dance that involves creating characters and stories through movement. The style combines elements of traditional folk dances, such as jigs and reels, with more modern dramatic presentations. Costumes are often used to create an atmosphere and convey the character’s emotions; props may be used to tell a story or create an atmosphere.


Open Dance is a form of artistic expression that combines elements from dance, music, theatre, and visual arts. It is an improvisational art form, emphasizing movement to express emotion and feelings rather than following specific steps or choreography. Open Dance invites performers to explore their creativity to create something unique and powerful.


Production dance draws on the individual strengths of each dancer to create a powerful unified performance. Show or production dance focuses on telling stories or conveying emotions through movement while emphasizing technique and precision. It is an exciting form of dance that can entertain, educate and inspire. This art form allows dancers to explore their abilities while pushing boundaries and inspiring others with their artistry.


Lyrical dance is a beautiful, expressive art form that combines elements of both ballet and contemporary dance. It has become increasingly popular as a way to express emotions and tell stories through movement. This type of dancing often follows the rhythm and melody of accompanying music, creating an emotional connection between the dancer and audience. Unlike traditional ballet, lyrical dance focuses more on body lines and the flow between movements, allowing a more expressive interpretation of the music.
