Dance

What styles I like the most

My favorite styles of dance are Lyrical, Ballet, and Hip-Hop. Lyrical is a very dramatic type of dance style because you put all of your emotions in this style of dance and all or your cool tricks. Ballet is a very mature and graceful type of dance. This style is where you get to show-off your amazing feet or your turn out. Now Hip-Hop is very hard hitting type of dance. Some people like this just like me because you can put a lot of energy into this style. It is really fun to.

Some of the dancers that changed the world

Michaela DePrince, in my opinion is one of the best dancers ever. There was a documentary about her and other dancers. Michaela said that people don't think that she could dance because of her skin color. But know she is one of the well known Ballet dancer. She was adopted but some parents did not want her because she has spots on her neck. Gelsey Kirkland, is also a really good dancer. She played Clara in the famous original production the Nutcracker. Mikhail Baryshnikov is also a great dancer. He was in the Nutcracker with Gelsey Kirkland he was the prince and she was Clara.

Dancers

My favorite principal dancer

My favorite principal dancer is Misty Copeland. She is the first African American principal dancer. She was born in Kansas City, and raised in San Pedro. She started dancing at the age of 13. In 2014 she was casted as Clara in the Nutcracker. In 2015 she was casted Juliet in Romeo and Juliet. She made history because she was the first African American to play the role of Odette/Odile in the production Swan Lake. She is just overall an amazing principal dancer.
