Jazz Dance Classes
Jazz covers a broad spectrum of dancing styles, from its traditional origins in Fosse style musicals such as Chicago and Sweet Charity, to its modern interpretations in pop, hip-hop and R&B music videos. This class will explore many of these styles, giving a background in the traditional elements of jazz with a strong focus on contemporary jazz trends and styles.
Students will learn the importance of stage presence, body awareness, and self-confidence while building on the dance fundamentals of alignment, strength, flexibility and coordination. Classes will start with stretching and strength work, followed by corner exercises and finishing with a routine. Jazz is high-energy learning in a fun and friendly environment!
