Jazz is a fun dance style that relies heavily on originality and improvisation. Many jazz dancers mix different styles into their dancing, incorporating their own expression. Jazz dancing often uses bold, dramatic body movements, including body isolations and contractions.
Initial exposure to jazz is in a combination class, for ages 3-5 and/or Jazzy Jazz Tippety Tap for ages 6-7.
Starting at age 8 students may begin a more concentrated study of jazz in hour long classes.
Class consists of warm up, across the floor technique, and choreography.
*Adult class offered.
“There comes a moment in a young artist’s life when he knows he has to bring something to the stage from within himself. He has to put in something in order to be able to take something out.”
