I love dancing. Any type of art that includes moving my body to the beat of music is a beautiful thing, and it’s something that can help you feel young and energetic at any age. There are so many different types of dance out there, sometimes it’s hard trying to figure out which kind I like the most. Parts of me can identify with many different types, because I grew up dancing. Michael Jackson was the first person to inspire me when it came to music, and dancing was definitely one of those aspects that got me going every time I heard his music or any other type of music. Madonna and Janet Jackson are also among the people who inspire me to dance. Here are my favorite kinds of dance.
Hip Hop is known as a street dance and can be seen on corners with moves that can be adapted from other movements in a hip sort of way. In music videos, hip hop is mostly done with rap music and R&B. What I love about hip hop dancing is the neverending ways in which you can express yourself. Plus, it gives you a great workout.
This is also known as a street dance and has been incorporated into many types of hip hop dances. When most people think of break dancing, they mostly of the dances seen on street corners and on music videos of the 80’s.
Yes, I love ballroom dancing. There are many different kinds, shown in elegant ways and have been seen in many competitions. Ballroom dancing consists of the tango, merengue, the waltz, the mambo, the rumba, salsa, foxtrot, and more. Ballroom dancing takes a certain amount of discipline and much practice to execute, but it can also be fun and keep your body fit at the same time, depending on which style you’re doing.
Tap dancing is very popular and takes time and practice to get down. This type of dance has most of its emphasis on the feet, making drum beats, with clicking sounds caused by the use of tap shoes. Not only does it look great, but sounds awesome as well.
This involves unique, bold movements, and include a lot of improvisation. This is mainly because jazz dancing is all about how you express your personality as opposed to someone else doing the same moves in their own unique way. That’s what makes jazz so fascinating. Jazz dances are very famous and can be used alongside or incorporated with hip hop and other street dances.
Ballet also takes a certain amount of discipline. This type of dance is is done as a way of expressing some kind of story or idea. Ballet is mostly seen at recitals, plays, and other ballet performances. It takes times to become good at ballet and is one of the hardest types to learn, but definitely worth it.
What I love the most about this is how you can express yourself in a sultry sort of way, using your hips, abdomen, and even your arms to show how you feel. Belly dancing is distinct because of these types of moves as well as the undulation moves done with your arms, hands, and hips. Belly dancing takes time but isn’t necessarily hard. It gives your abs a great workout as well.
Native American dances vary greatly and are done for different reasons. I love seeing this type of dance while hearing the classic drum beat. Native American dances consists of the grass dance, war dance, fancy shawl dance, and more. These are just some favorites of mine. You can see these dances done at any pow wow, which is a Native American festival.
