Jazz is a dance form with wide appeal because of its energy, variety, and vitality. Jazz classes explore contemporary and classic jazz dance that draws inspiration from a wide range of music including jazz, swing, musical theater/ Broadway, blues, pop, soul and funk. Our jazz program is based on ballet technique and is layered with a warm-up to develop strength, flexibility, correct alignment, and coordination; followed by progressions across the floor; and culminates in extended dance combinations. The movement explores the range of styles with a focus on jazz elements such as isolations, swing, and rhythm. The goal is to develop dancers who are expressive, dynamic, musical and passionate.  As students progress through each level, curriculum will become increasingly more complex and intricate.
