Jazz dance is an exciting fun and ever evolving dance form. It can be powerful and percussive or lyrical and expressive. Students are encouraged to develop their own sense of style through movement. Our jazz dance classes include intensive strengthening warm ups, isolations, stretching techniques to elongate and encourage muscle strength, across the floor movements, leaps, turns and center combination work to fun and upbeat, recognizable music. Your student will have great knowledge of jazz dance terminology, a visual change in strength and flexibility, and a great appreciation for the dance form. Students of jazz are strongly encouraged to study ballet simultaneously for the best possible jazz dance experience. All of the Academy's jazz dance classes follow a set curriculum.
