    My first class was a combo class! Our studio calls it tot. They teach the fundamentals of jazz, ballet, tap, and also a little of other styles. Our recital dance was tap though. =)

      Aww cute! That’s pretty common too – at least a tap/ballet combo class. You got lucky to have even more variety! 🙂

    My first class was a ballet class at age 2 or 3. I’m almost 15 years old now and I’ve never stopped dancing.

    My first class was a ballroom dance class. Now I’ve been training in ballroom for about 4 years and recently became the studio intern 🙂
