Disco/Freestyle/Street are very artistic styles of dance that allows each student to portray his or her own interpretation of dance steps to a piece of music, coordinating accentuated body movements together with a number of arm, head and hand movements. This I feel allows the student freedom to express themselves and to build on their confidence and imagination, both working on their own and as a team.

icon-discois defined by the mid 70's era, highlighted of course by John Travolta in 'Saturday Night Fever' in 1977. Originally it was composed of several simple steps, such as 'The Hustle' and is almost always choreographed and not improvised, based very much on the DJ-driven repetative beat in the music. It can be danced as solo, partner or line dance.

 

icon-freestyle2can at times be a very high-energy style of dance, involving much travelling around the room with spins, turns, kicks and so a great way for students to keep fit!

icon-streetis an umbrella term to describe dance styles which evolved outside of the dance studio, literally in the streets (hence the name). It is often improvised and encourages interaction with spectators and other dancers. It includes styles such as breakdancing, popping, locking, robotics, hip-hop, vogue and waacking, to name but a few.
