What type of dance should i do?

I used to take dance classes until I was about 8 (ballet, tap, jazz, and hip hop) and the instructor said that i was "a phenomenal dancer" I'm now 14 and i really want to take dance classes again. I know I've fallen behind a lot on the skills needed for most types of dances so I don't know what type of dance I should do. Should I take dance classes again or am I too behind? And if so what kind? I taught myself the dance from Britney Spears music video Dance Until the World Ends and I did it pretty well. I would like to take that kind of dance class, but I don't know what type that is. Some people said like hip hop or jazz, but I looked it up and hip hop has a lot of like crumping and stuff, which did not look like the right kind. And jazz had a lot of leaps and difficult moves that i think would be really hard for me to catch up to. I would like to take the type of dance that's done in Hollywood a lot by people like Britney Spears, Madonna, Christina Aguilara, etc. Please help, because I want to dance so badly but I don't want to embarrass myself in a class I would do poorly in. And also I wouldnt want to be the only teen in a class full of little kids

Jazz is a lot of technique. But the Brittney Spears is most like hip hop. I would go for contemporay hip hop bcuz its basically a combo of both. Jazz and hip hop are wide subjects for dance, theyres a lot so u just have to try and see. Also, u can try something new, dont be afriad that ur gonna suck. If ur a phemonial dancer, u can easily catch on. So have faith and urll get it.

Try Salsa and also try some gymnastics, that should probably help you catch up with some of your skills.

It seems like you would do well in Hip Hop. But do whatever you want to do the most. You would probably be put in a class with kids around your age and with the same skills. Don't feel embarrassed because a dance instructor focuses on each and everyone of their students and tries to help them improve. Don't be embarrassed and good luck <3!

Thank you! :) and what kind of moves do they do in hip hop? From what I've seen its alot of crumping/popping and stuff. Is that what it is?

There is a lot of crumping/popping also waves. I think that hip hop can't always fit into one category though, it has it's own feel that other styles don't. I have fun doing hip hop and so do my students, it makes me feel free. I've done lots of dance styles and I find Hip Hop the most fun :)
