Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. The sound is made by shoes that have a metal “tap” on the heel and toe. Two major variations on tap dance exist: rhythm (jazz) tap and Broadway tap. Broadway tap focuses on dance; it is widely performed in musical theater. Rhythm tap focuses on musicality, and practitioners consider themselves to be a part of the jazztradition.

Jazz is a music genre that originated in the African-American communities of New Orleans, United States, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and developed from roots in blues and ragtime. Jazz is seen by many as ‘America’s classical music’. Since the 1920s Jazz Age, jazz has become recognized as a major form of musical expression. It then emerged in the form of independent traditional and popular musical styles, all linked by the common bonds of African-American and European-American musical parentage with a performance orientation.

Lyrical dance is a style of dance created by merging ballet, jazz and contemporary dance techniques. Lyrical dancing is performed to music with lyrics to inspire movements to express strong emotions the choreographer feels from the lyrics in the chosen song.

A dance that reflects emotion in a routine. It can’t be done in shoes, only barefoot. Although, some people wear one sock to help them twist and turn as their soles have too much grip

Recreational

Recreational dance is the opposite of professional dance. Recreational dance training would be like what they have at small dance studios and recital schools. Competition dance also fits into that too because it isn’t professional dance.
Professional training is like ballet academy training in schools that are feeder schools for ballet companies and in other dance, it is the caliber and seriousness of the training. Over 15 hours in a serious school would be pre-professional training not recreational training.
