Dance styles have ranged from abstract to modern, tap, swing, hip-hop, African, ballet and salsa. Dance Alloy's goal is to provide an artistic performance outlet for those interested in expressing themselves through movement. We do not exclude individuals on the basis of ability. All you have to have is the passion to move.
