Dancers are like athletes

Dancers are elite athletes as well as artists. They must stay in top condition, just like professional athletes such as basketball or hockey players. Dancers have amazing flexibility, muscular strength. Professional dancers train and practice every day for an average of six hours. Many also cross-train with cardio, weight lifting, yoga and/or Pilates to improve their physical fitness and technique.

Break dance is an athletic solo form of dance that originated in the street in the United States. The foundation of break dance includes top/up rock, breakdowns, footwork and freezes, as well as acrobatic spins and power moves.


Being a successful b-boy or b-girl, as break dancers are known, requires the ability to freestyle using the foundation vocabulary while creating individual style. Battles are an important part of b-boy/b-girl culture. They can either take the form of one-on-one competitions, where dancers face their opponents head on, or as group or crew battles, where a whole team works together, mixing a solo and group choreographies.


Hip hop dance originated on the streets of New York City among young Hispanic and African-American men during the late 1960s as part of the hip hop culture of rap, scratch music and graffiti art. Break dance is the most common style of this constantly evolving dance form. A newer form that came out of Los Angeles is the freestyle, high energy and confrontational krumping, in which the dancers sometimes use physical contact and weight sharing. Hip hop dance and music, which became internationally popular in the late 1970s, are now often incorporated into theatrical dance.


Modern dance usually refers to 20th-century concert dance that developed in the United States and Europe. Rebelling against classical ballet, early modern dance pioneers began to practice "free dance", often in bare feet. In America, Loie Fuller, Isadora Duncan and Ruth St. Denis developed their own styles of free dance, paving the way for American modern dance pioneers Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey and José Limón. In Europe, Émile Jaques-Dalcroze and François Delsarte developed theories of human movement and methods that led to European modern dance.
