Jazz

Fundamental Jazz

This class makes an excellent pair with our pre-ballet class. Technique is emphasized as students dance to upbeat music in a more stylized manner. (Ages 6-8)

Level 1-4 Jazz

Jazz dance can take many forms ranging from musical theatre to lyrical.  Each requires solid technique, though they are more stylized than ballet. Classes continue to emphasize strength and flexibility along with rhythm, body isolations, and expression. They include thorough warm-up and conditioning exercises, traditional jazz steps, and extended combinations. Throughout the year, the different levels will work both individually and in different groupings with other levels. (Ages 8 and up)

Level 1-2--no ballet class required, but recommended
