Jazz: 2015-2016

Jazz is a dance form that appeals to everyone because of its energy, variety and vitality. Jazz Dance classes explore contemporary and classic jazz dance. Classes begin with a warm-up to develop strength, flexibility, correct alignment and coordination, followed by progressions across the floor, and culminates in extended dance combinations. The movement explores a range of styles in both lyrical and percussive disciplines with a focus on jazz elements such as isolations, swing and rhythm. The goal is to develop dancers who are expressive, dynamic, musical and passionate. Students at all levels are encouraged, but not required, to take ballet classes. Ballet strengthens jazz technique assisting the student's progress, allowing them to move through the levels more rapidly.

The following classes are invited to participate in our special end of year performance. A costume purchase and regular attendance are requirements to participate in this performance.

Dance attire & shoes are available for purchase at the dance studio. Open House – September 3rd – 5th, call for hours 203-544-9007.
