What Is Dance?
Do you do dance? Dance is a great way to express yourself. There are so many different genres of dance like, Jazz, hip hop, ballet,etc. and the great thing is there is no right or wrong,it’s just what you feel in the music! But if you want to do dance competitively (when you go against someone else to win) or seriously you should take dance lessons. Dance is a great activity to start no matter what age you are!
First, Second, Third
Do you want to learn some dance moves to get started? The first thing I will show you is first ,second ,and third position. First position is feet together with turn out and arms out in a round shape, NO sickling(you bend your foot the wrong and it can lead to bone problems). Second is feet spread apart with turn out (feet turned to the side) and arms out straight to the side.Third is one foot in front with turn out and the other foot in the back with turn out, arms round in front.There are so many more things to learn,like a pirouette or plea.
Leotards And Tutus
Not everything in dance is leotards and tutus, like hip-hop you wear your street clothes, sneakers, and a ponytail. For ballet on the other hand, is more strict about what you wear. For example, you have to wear your hair in a bun, tights, black leotards(a close fitting one piece garment), and ballet shoes. For most types of dance like Lyrical, Jazz, tap, you just need your hair in a pony, a leotard, and what ever type of shoe you need.Also when,you start you are going to want to have a dance bag. For each dance style, you will need a different type of clothing!
