Our Jazz class exposes students to Classical Jazz, Hip Hop and a touch of Lyrical! The most commonly utilized commercial style of dance. From Broadway to cruise ships to the latest Gap AD, jazz dance is the style of dance that pioneered many a dance career.
Jazz dance has several styles and methods, most of which are taught in this class. Classical Jazz is medium paced and is based on style, utilizing both full body flexibility and isolated moves. Hip Hop is high intensity, fun filled dancing to the latest pop music. Lyrical focuses on slow moving turns, releases and personal expression. Combined, these styles enhance flexibility while toning the muscles and improving endurance. The class begins with a center warm up focused on classical principles, strength, range of motion and flexibility. Dancers are given simple to complex exercises that challenge these principles depending on their age and class level. Register for our Jazz class to develop individual expression!
