Jazz dance is a popular form of dance particularly with teenagers.It originated in vaudeville and became identified with
tap dance set to jazz music. Jazz dance evolved into a smooth style performed on Broadway and popularized by Bob Fosse. It
is generally regarded that the basis for good jazz technique is ballet, which builds the strength and coordination required.
We offer beginning teen jazz classes as well as advanced classes. Of course, all students studying jazz are encouraged to
take ballet classes though it is not required. Note that all music and costumes (should the student be involved in a performance)
are age appropriate.
These classes include isolations, barre, center exercises, progressions, improvisations, dance combinations
and special choreographed dance routines that encompass the many styles of jazz dance from Broadway to TV.
