It is a poised style of dance that incorporates the foundational techniques for many other dance forms. This genre of dance is very hard to master and requires much practice.

This type of dance can also incorporate various styles.

  10. Tap Dance

    Wear black suite and shiny shoes then start dancing. Here the emphasis is on the movements of the feet and steps that create a tapping sound. The tapping sound is due to the presence of metal plates on the soles of the shoes. Creating music/rhythm with your feet while dancing is the soul of this dance form.
