About The Event

No Previous Experience Necessary!

Jazz dance combines techniques of classical ballet and modern dance with the current forms of popular dance. Jazz also has its own movement vocabulary ranging from the isolation of certain body parts to the movement of the entire body with the accents of musical rhythms. Jazz dance can take on many different characteristics and styles, including Street Jazz, Percussive, Broadway, Contemporary and Lyrical. Jazz classes can be patterned in any of these styles or a combination of them. Emphasis is on the importance of energy, rhythmical accuracy, and style.

This is an Introductory Jazz Class that combines stretching, aerobic exercise, strength, and upbeat movement to create fun, exciting routines. This lively class works to improve technique, stamina, and flexibility. Emphasis on Musical Theatre vocabulary.

This class will teach the basic jazz dance skills neccessary for musical theatre auditions.
