There were over 24 different styles of dance, including tap, jazz, contemporary, ballet, modern, hip hop, Hawaiian and Polynesian, bellydance, Afro-Haitian, salsa and many more.
Spurts of breakdancing with boombox beats could be found on the streets between the stages. People of all kinds and ages essay writing showed up to enjoy and celebrate the art, energy, creativity and overall unifying qualities of dance.
