Types of Dance

There are many types and dance. Some are contemporary, ballet, waltzing, hip hop, jazz, and tap, just to name a few. For ballet, you usually dance to classical music. It's a graceful style, including arabesques, pirouettes, and grande jétés. Contemporary is more of a dance through which you see the personality and vision of the performer. It's does not have perfect technique, including things like falls and recovery. Waltzing is a dance in a three four time signature. The most common step is the box step, but other steps are used too. Turns and lifts also are used in waltzing.
