Offered to ages 8 through adult, at various levels. Jazz is a stylized and technical form of dance. Classes focus on both classic and current styles of jazz, while keeping emphasis on technique, center, and placement. Creative choreography is taught and dancers learn how to interpret their music with control and fluidity. Classes integrate the fundamentals of ballet for proper technique, while using exciting music and fresh moves. Students of jazz fare best with a background in ballet to provide basic discipline and a firm foundation in the principles of jazz movement. We highly recommend students continue ballet training while taking jazz.
Required attire: Hair, leotard and tights are the same as ballet. Black jazz shoes are required.
