Within some of the contexts of the shows themselves, some opinions believe that the public only understands the most popular styles of dance that’s on television. For example, with widespread styles of hip hop and contemporary styles on shows like So You Think You Can Dance, other styles are being removed from the equation of relevancy. Mandy Moore, a famous dance choreographer, stated her views on the subject by discussing how the public feels that tap is an irrelevant dance style due to the lack of appearances on television. Because of these trends, studios are compensating to teaching more popular dance styles rather than tap, for example, to adapt for this fame (Opene) Also, some dance television shows feature how the dancers learn and become an expressive dancer within a matter of days. Some television shows that contain this are unskilled celebrities dancing on Dancing with the Stars and memorizing a dance piece in days in So You Think You Can Dance.

Second, the space was utilized in a way that added to the dance as well. For example, the first dancer to dance with the man portraying the husband was beat down. From here, she remained still in the corner of the stage, symbolizing the repression of the wife by the husband in the relationship.
