What is the difference between jazz dance and hip hop?
Jazz dancing is stricter in form and much more structured compared to hip hop dancing. The moves in jazz dancing are sassy and slow compared to the upbeat moves of hip hop.
Jazz and hip hop are two completely different dances. Hip hop is more if you like being freestyle and making sharp moves, and hip hop costumes are sweats and a sweater or a t-shirt etc. Jazz dance requires precision. You must point toes and do split leaps etc. Jazz and ballet go together. If you take ballet, it will improve the way you do in any other dance. Jazz is an upbeat and fun version…

contemporary means new... therefore, contemporary jazz is the new style of jazz but contemporary is basically a mix of all of the dance styles combined. Mainly, it is a combination of lyrical, jazz and hip-hop. Lyrical being a mix of jazz and ballet. So I guess you could say contemporary dance or modern dance is a mix of all the style combined.
