Genre Expectations

Classical – The performer focuses on their classical technique using formalized movements and positions 
of their arms, feet and body, designed to enable them to move with the greatest possible agility, 
control, speed, lightness, and grace to a piece of classical dance music.  A classical costume, such as a tutu and ballet shoes must be worn.

Demi Character/Character – a dance using classical ballet technique to represent a character.

Neo-Classical – allows performers to use their classical ballet technique to dance to modern music in 
a costume suited to the mood.

Lyrical – The performer uses their dance skills, technique, expression and feeling through their body 
movements and face to connect with and relay the story or theme and mood of the piece of music.

Modern – Modern jazz style of dance which may include jazz, Broadway jazz, musical theatre/comedy, disco or hip hop (solo/duo sections). Music and costumes should be suited to style of dance chosen.

Contemporary – Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several 
dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect 
the mind and the body through fluid dance movements.  Contemporary dance stresses versatility and 
improvisation, unlike the strict, structured nature of ballet. Contemporary dancers focus on floor work, using 
gravity to pull them down to the floor. 

Song & Dance – The performer must sing a portion of the performance to showcase their vocal ability and 
dance in a style that suits the music chosen. Song and soft shoe or song and tap are allowed in this section.

Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of 
percussion.
