Tap• This has evolved as an American dance form, popularised throughout the world, with debate about its origins coming from African dance, Irish dance and/or clog dancing. The dancer uses their feet to strike the floor, beating out different rhythms, with dancers wearing tap shoes which have small metal plates on the toe and heel to give the distinctive sound. Tap dance is a theatrical art form often seen on stage in musicals.
Ballet• The most important part of a ballet dancers equipment is ballet shoes. After several years of proper training, some female ballet dancers wear point shoes to make them appear lighter and more delicate. Ballet dancers wear tights and leotards to class and rehearsals, as tight, form-fitting clothing is best for dancing. Tutus, or ballet skirts, are usually reserved for performances and recitals.
Freestyle• Freestyle dancing can apply to numerous dance types and can be defined as any style of dance where the moves are not thought out ahead and where no choreography of the moves occurs before the dance begins. It is literally thinking on your feet in this sense, and freestyle dancing can exist in almost all dance forms. As freestyle implies, the dancer is free to make it up as he or she goes, though if you are dancing a waltz, you generally don’t freestyle into a different dance form like the tango.
