Jazz

Jazz (8K) 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.
