Jazz 1

Jazz is an energetic and exhilarating class of rhythmic movement. This upbeat style combines elements of cultural dance, ballet technique, modern dance, and forms of popular dance. Jazz dance has many unique movement styles and its own vocabulary. Jazz dance classes contain isolation movements, strength based skills, stylized across the floor sequences, floorwork, jumps, and turns. Jazz dance encourages each dancer to find their own unique style of dance and self-expression.
