Jazz

The popularity of Jazz dance has evolved from the early 1900’s when Jazz music invaded the sound waves of the radio. The key elements to the Jazz style are syncopation, individual style, and improvisation. The changing musical beat offers an interpretative edge and excitement for the dancer and the choreographer. Jazz dance directly expresses the music.
The studio teaches in the American, Commercial Style. Classes include: warm-up exercises with some ballet technique, isolations, combinations, and choreography. Some Lyrical and Modern dance are also integrated into specific classes.
Classes are taught to current Pop music.
