Ballet is the form of all dance. Turn-out in ballet all started when a chubby king danced on a slanted stage and couldn't stop falling forward. So, he decided to turn his feet out to stop falling and it worked!!! He stopped falling. Now that's not the reason we do it now. In fact most ballerinas use turn-out, because it is very pretty, and it is part of dance. Ballet means telling a story.
There are many different kinds of jazz.
I am more familiar with hip-hop and street jazz than lyrical and classical . Lyrical jazz is telling a story with your movements. Hip-hop is usually to fast music kind of loose. Street jazz is kind of jerky not smooth (not beef jerky) and fast.
Tap is very entertaining and fun to learn . Most of tap is beginning steps put together in a harder way and faster. Tap also came from ballet.
