Recently, all styles of dance have been getting a lot of attention in popular media such as commercials, television, and film. As a training and aspiring dancer, this is super exciting. It started off with hip hop being in a lot of ads and movies; there's 'You Got Served', the 'Step Up' movies, and even the Kia Soul commercials with the dancing hamsters. Now with continuing shows such as So You Think You Can Dance and Dance Moms, other styles of dance are getting a lot more attention. A lot of people may not have known what ballet, jazz, or contemporary dance was like, until now.
With more and more exposure to today's society, classical and technique-based dancing is in the spotlight. This genre of dance is typically performed in a theatre setting, and dancers of all walks of life enjoy going to see a live performance. But, what about people who don't dance or people who have never been to the theatre? They can now get a taste of what dance is all about simply by watching t.v. This is how dance is evolving in today's world and the art form is finally getting the attention and respect that it deserves.
Just because :)
