I don't think that good jazz is harmful at all, and can even help. I see no value to hip hop. As long as you are getting enough classical ballet training, a bit of jazz is quite fine :D

I think that a lot of the up and coming dance companies prefer that their dancers have experience in many different forms of dance. Even if you want to dance in a purely classical ballet company, Jazz can still be useful. I've never heard anything about hip hop being helpful, though.

And let's not leave out Modern Dance! :wink: Graham, Taylor, Limon, Humphrey/Weidman, Cunningham and Horton are techniques which many successful ballet dancers practice.

And dedicated character classes! Anybody out there dance a proper csardas? Or a good fandango?
