This International Dance Day, here are a few popular dance forms to help you celebrate.
Considered to be one of the most difficult dance forms, ballet dancing is usually set to orchestrated music and is the basis of many other forms. Its complex mixture of technique, coordination and musicality makes it an excellent foundation for people looking to excel in dancing.
Wearing shoes specially designed with metal plates on the toe and heel, dancers of this form use their feet to create sound similar to those produced by percussion instruments. The two most notable examples of tap dancing are the musically-driven Rhythm Tap and the dance and movement-oriented Broadway Tap. This dance form especially helps dancers nurture their sense of rhythm.
This popular dance form is said to have been influenced by ballet, modern, tap, hip-hop, African dance and many more styles.
It consists of a variety of styles that came into being in different regions and eras of Argentina and elsewhere around the world, in response to many cultural elements, such as the crowding of the venue and even clothing fashions. Some popular styles of tango include tango vals, tango argentino, tango canyengue, tango oriental uruguayan, tango liso and tango salon.
