JAZZ: A dance form that 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. The movement explores a range of styles in both lyrical and percussive disciplines 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.
