Born out of African dance, American tap dance, ballet, and theatre, Jazz dance is inherently related to popular music and has evolved alongside it. Our classes draw from a variety of jazz styles both historical and contemporary ranging from Broadway, commercial, funk, and classical techniques. Students begin with a high energy warm-up, progress to across-the-floor exercises, and use skills and concepts to master choreography to various music styles. All levels emphasize strength, isolations, syncopated rhythms, and precision.
