I’m sure you have all heard it said that Ballet is the foundation of all forms of dance, and while there is some truth to that, all styles matter.
Being well rounded will not only help you in class, on auditions and with performance aspects but it may very well open you up to something that you never thought of trying before.
All styles of dance have a connective tissue that binds them together within the art form and also have many unique qualities that can grow you as a dancer.
Tap can teach great musicality, Jazz can give you your flare as dancer, Modern can ground you, Hip Hop can get you into the groove, Ballet can give you great alignment and understanding of he body. All have different technique to back them up and are different forms of expression and all have great value to every dancer.
Let me encourage you to get out there and try a new style today. You never know what you may unlock.
