About the Disciplines
Ballet is a classical dance form, which evolved from French court dancing over many years, this is why the terminology used is all in French. Ballet teaches grace and posture and is the foundation for most other dance forms.
Tap dancing has its roots in clog dance which has evolved to become the tap we see today. Tap teaches rhythm and style along with extending students sense of musical timing, but above all its great fun.
Modern conditions the body using stretching and strengthening exercises. It is fabulous for developing excellent posture and rhythm. The dance movements can be lyrical or up temp with the emphasis on developing performance.
