Jazz is definitely one of the most commonly known and sought after dance styles. Jazz can have many different ranges from Broadway, which is commonly seen in stage shows, to Commercial Jazz, which is most commonly seen on TV and in music videos. Jazz is the perfect combination of technique, coordination and choreography!
Tap is by far the noisiest style of dance! Students learn to create different rhythms and sounds with the use of their feet by wearing tap shoes that have metal plates on the toes and heels to create those sounds. It is a fun and exciting form of dance that constantly keeps the dancer thinking.
At Performance Edge Tap is incorporated into our preschool program then we offer individual Tap syllabus classes to school age students. We follow the BAL Tap 'N Beats syllabus in which students will learn designated steps to which annual examinations are offered.
Hip Hop is known to be the most free, funky and hard hitting style of dance.

At Performance Edge we offer Hip Hop classes to all school aged students and Hip Hop is incorporated in our preschool program.
Lyrical is a beautiful combination of soft, fluid movement, technique and emotion, which is quickly becoming one of the most sort after and popular dance styles in the industry.
