Jazz is the oldest and most traditional dance style using modern street music. Jazz uses ballet technique and adds isolation movements with a strong emphasis on flexibility and jumps to create an exciting dance style. It’s beginnings can be traced to African dance. All classes use a barre and floor and center as well as across the floor warm up and combination work.
Junior Jazz is for our younger dancers ages 9 and up. As Jazz uses isolations and strength, it is not recommended for 8 and under.
Senior jazz class is for the more serious jazz student who also has a background in ballet.
