Age: 5+ years

Jazz Dance appeals to everyone because of its energy, variety, and vitality. Jazz Dance classes explore contemporary and classic jazz dance that draws inspiration from a wide range of music including jazz, swing, blues, pop, soul and funk, trip-hop. Jazz classes begin with a warm-up to develop strength, flexibility, correct alignment and coordination, followed by progressions across the floor, and culminates in extended dance combinations. Traveling patterns and choreography focus on jazz elements such as turns, leaps, splits, isolations, swing, and rhythm. The goal is to develop dancers who are expressive, dynamic, musical and passionate.

Jazz Dress Code: Leggings (preferably black), shirt that is easy to move in, jazz shoes, contemporary shoes, or bare feet.
