If you answered mostly A’s: You’ve got a knack for rhythm that keeps your feet tapping. You go with the flow and are comfortable improvising with any situation. Tap Dancing will let you play your feet like percussion and Irish Stepdance and Scottish Highland Dance will keep your legs busy. Flamenco lets you clap and stomp out your emotions while West African Dance calls upon your whole body to answer the beats. Or, let your midsection work the rhythm in Tribal Bellydance or Hula.
If you answered mostly B’s: You’re a social butterfly with sensitivity that makes people feel comfortable around you, and you’ve always got a date for the weekend. Combined with your natural ability for coordination, anyone would be lucky to have you as their dance partner in Salsa, Tango, Swing or Ballroom. Line and Square Dancing also provide interaction with others while you move to the beat – that is after all, why you enjoy the YMCA and Macarena, right?
If you answered mostly C’s: You have an ear to the ground for trends, and you’re not shy about experimenting with new things. Moving your body feels good, and your stamina ensures you’ll be dancing well into the night. Contemporary Dance, Hip Hop, House, Reggae Dancehall and Breakdancing will give you an outlet for expression and hot moves for the dance clubs.
If you answered mostly D’s: A smile goes a long way, and you have fun entertaining others. Your confidence inspires your friends and your audience, who are hanging onto your every move. In your mind, most of life’s occurrences can be depicted in song and dance numbers. Dance styles such as Jazz, Broadway Jazz, Burlesque and Bollywood bring you into the limelight where you belong!
