Dance Instruction Terms to Know

If you or one of your children are considering enrolling in a ballet, tap, and jazz studio, there are some important terms to know before your first lesson at school. Learning the following terms and definitions will allow you to better understand the instructor on your first day of ballet, tap, and jazz dancing.

  • Swivel - When an instructor advises a kid to swivel, he or she is referring to an action that takes place on a weighted foot. This can take place in ballet, tap, or jazz, and results in a twirl or spin. It can be tricky for beginner child students because of balance development.
  • Tap Step - Used in tap dancing instruction and choreography, tap is the downward motion of the foot, which results in a tap sound when wearing tap shoes. Step, on the other hand, is the upward movement of the foot in between tap sounds. This can be slow or very fast, depending on the routine.
  • Tempo - The speed of the music is referred to as its tempo. A faster tempo means a faster song, and by extension, probably faster dance moves and choreography. Faster temp music is saved for more advanced dance routines and school performances.
  • Unit - A unit is the smallest measurement of a piece of music or dance. More often, you will hear about rhythm units, which groups several units into the dominant pattern of the song.
  • Timing - Timing is another technique taught at a dance studio. A dancer that is able to control his or her movements to keep them parallel to that of the music is a student that has timing.
