Jazz and hip hop are two completely different dances. Hip hop is more if you like being freestyle and making sharp moves, and hip hop costumes are sweats and a sweater or a t-shirt etc. Jazz dance requires precision.

What is your favorite type of dance?

I have to say... my favorite type of dance is contemporary/lyrical. It's like a mixture of ballet and jazz.

Why do people dance contemporary dance?

(I think) It is because they do not want to dance Ballet. According to what I have heard, Contemporary is supposed to be against Ballet, and it was supposed to be for people who want to break free from the rules of Ballet. The woman that invented Contemporary probably learned Ballet and probably found it very restricted and questioned about (e.g.) why the positions were like that and why she could not do it another way. I think that is why she invented Contemporary.
