Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Try jazz!. It's really upbeat, has a lot of leaps and jumps, sort of similar to ballet but it's not!. Try hip hop, again really upbeat and awesome moves!. Good luck! Happy dancing :)Www@QuestionHome@Com

Ballat is the route of all dance!. Once you get used to that (maybe take it for a year or so) then you can move onto the other types!. Here they are:

Hip hop
lyrical (a form of ballat but you do it barefoot)
contemporary (more movement than lyrical and ballet)
modern (it is pretty much contemporary, but the music is different)
turns and progressions
krumping (a really hard-to-master form of hip hop)
lyrical-hip hop (a mixture of lyrical and hip hop)

If you want to learn more about these dance types, i suggest you watch So You Think You Can Dance!. They have many dance types on there, and it is very inspiring! I hope I helped!!Www@QuestionHome@Com

I first started out with ballet, jazz, and then hip hop!. I did this because ballet and jazz makes your body!.!.!."prepared" and very flexible!. also, because it gives your body a sence of how to dance hard!. If you enjoy today's music, I reccomend doing jazz and hip hop, although jazz is not a must!. Dance is fun and for everyone so it doesnt matter if you start now or in 30 years!! Hope I helped and email me if you have any dance questions!.!. much luck to you and have fun!!!Www@QuestionHome@Com
