Jazz is a high-energy form of dance set to popular music. The fundamentals of jazz involve body isolations, jumps, leaps, turns, lots of fun and exercise!
Dancers can begin jazz in 2nd grade. The reason we ask that dancers are a little older, is that in order to be able to do real jazz, dancers must have the muscular development to isolate different parts of their body.
Students are grouped by age and experience. We use age-appropriate, popular music for each group. Classes begin at 30 minutes per week, and are designed to be combined with ballet and/or tap back to back.
Experienced jazz dancers are invited to audition for our Dance Teams! Dance teams perform and compete different styles of jazz dancing each year. Dancers must be in at least 3rd grade to audition. See Dance Teams section for more information.
