“Great dancers are great because of their passion.”
The core of dance
Ballet has a history dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries. The etymology of the word “ballet” reflects its history. The word ballet comes from French and was borrowed into English around the 17th century. The French word in turn has its origins in Italian balletto, a diminutive of ballo (dance). Ballet ultimately traces back to Italian ballare, meaning “to dance.” It is the core of all other forms of dance.
The versatile form of dance
Jazz is a flowing and free form of dance that have many different variations of the genre. Now a days Jazz can be seen on Broadway, in movies and music videos and many other places. Jazz dates back to the 1800’s and was very popular in New Orleans when Jazz music first hit the scene. When this style first came about, it was more improvisation than choreographed movements. In the early days choreographers would use highly trained dancers to perform the difficult movements that have made Jazz dance the sensation it is today.
The percussive form of dance
Tap originated in the 19th century when slave owners took away the slave’s percussive instruments, so slaves turned to percussive dance to express themselves. The early forms of tap shoes had wooden soles and pennies or nails on the toe and heel of the shoe to produce the sound. As tap has grown in popularity over the years it has also developed many different forms, such as rhythm tap (jazz) tap, classical tap, Broadway tap, and post-modern tap. Tap has definitely progressed over the years, but the basics are still the same. Tap is also one of the only forms of dance that can be performed without music.
