However rigorous and uniform training may be, each dancer always has a personal style of dancing. Certain skills come more easily to some dancers than to others: one may be an excellent jumper, while another may have exquisite control and balance in slow, sustained dance passages.
The same choreography may also look completely different when executed by two different bodies. Thus, a dancer with very long limbs will make high leg extensions look exaggeratedly long while appearing slightly awkward in fast, intricate footwork.
Another dancer may have a great deal of energy and speed but be unable to produce a sustained and beautiful line in held positions.
Dancers also vary a great deal in the way they articulate and project movement. Some dancers move in a way that is tense, energetic, and even aggressive in its attack, , while others appear soft and fluid.
Some phrase their movements so that every detail is sharp and clear; others so that one element flows into another. Some move exactly in time with the phrasing of the music; others phrase their movement slightly independently of it.
One dancer may produce movements that are dramatically charged and expressive, while another may be cool and detached, concentrating on technical perfection.
Such qualities may vary so distinctively that certain dance roles become inextricably connected to the dancers for whom they were created.
No matter the style, what each dancer brings to the table is unique and unparalleled!
