JAZZ DANCE

(INCLUDES HIP HOP AND CONTEMPORARY/LYRICAL, Ages 7 and above)

Various styles and moods in jazz are presented in this class. Students in Level 1 and 2 learn traditional jazz and Basic Hip Hop and those in Level 3 and above also get to learn Contemporary/Lyrical and Musical Theater (all in one class). Our jazz classes emphasize the mastery of correct technique and proper body alignment designed to increase body strength and flexibility. Stylized jazz walks and jumps are added as the student advances. Dance Company students often explore Hip Hop and Contemporary as separate classes. (Class length – 1 hour for Beginners, 1½ hours for Intermediate and Advanced)
