Jazz Dance comes from the stages of Broadway. This high energy dance form focuses on technique, style, flexibility, and coordination. In our jazz dance class these skills are developed through warm-up exercises and progressions incorporating, kicks, jumps, and turns. Students dance to up-tempo music. Expression and style through dynamic movement are encouraged in combinations and jazz dance routines.
