Jazz dance is a favorite to students of all ages, all levels. It is a fusion of kicks, leaps, turns, isolations, and combinations to the beat of faster paced music. Music is upbeat and the class is high energy, often using popular music. We challenge our students with many different forms of jazz--all high energy, but with different styles. Jazz class is a fun and fast paced mixture of various techniques including Broadway, modern, contemporary, and stylized. Jazz dancers benefit from a sound working knowledge of ballet technique. Jazz dance curriculum commonly includes ballet turns, jumps, and basic terminology. By enrolling in ballet class alongside of jazz, students will see a faster and more concrete improvement in their dancing.
