Well all the dance styles above are extremely popular choices. However, this article focuses on the most recent of these styles, i.e. street dance. Street dance is a pretty loose term but generally a class described as such in London is likely to teach you how to do routines much like what you see in many music videos. The same can also be said for commercial jazz styles.

So if you want to learn it or any of its component and associated styles such as hip hop dance, locking and popping where you can go? There are several options.

One such option is a dance studio. Even though the style is becoming ever more popular with the release of films including Step Up 2 and also the success of dance acts on shows such as Britain's Got Talent, it may not always be offered at local studios. Sometimes you need to go further afield or to bigger studios so that you can do it.

People often ask, if it is 'street dance' can it be learned about the streets? The answer needless to say is yes. If you have a buddy or friends that understand how to do it, it may be a possible option. Or if you're lucky enough to get find a dancer hangout with individuals who'd be happy to show a novice the ropes you'll be able to learn on the street.

So many people are more comfortable learning in a dance class though. After all why broadcast your dancing it around the globe when you still do not know how to do it yet right? Well learning all the time is actually possible if this describes something you're comfortable with but most people will take advantage of learning in a studio.

The benefits of learning in a mirrored studio, would be that the mirrors can help you make improvements and adjustments live as you go along. When you're a newcomer you'll probably need to make plenty of adjustments in order to seem like the dance teacher!
