Jazz Dance Classes

Athletic, exciting and powerful describe the energy and movement of modern jazz dance. Jazz dance is a form of modern dance which is heavily influenced by the sounds, rhythms, and techniques of jazz music. Like jazz music, jazz dance is highly individual, with an emphasis on showcasing individual skills. It showcases individual style—originality that only jazz dancers themselves can interpret and execute with their own spin and personality on each move.

Jazz is now recognized as a major dance form, with fancy footwork and quick turns defined by grace and balance. Like the music which inspired it, jazz dance has its roots in the African-American community in the United States. Jazz is known for being heavily unpredictable, it may be slow, dreamlike and graceful, or they may move abruptly and sharply, executing fantastic leaps and other feats. As a result, they must be physically very flexible, and very attuned to the music they dance to.

Most talented jazz dancers start out in the field of ballet. In ballet classes, they learn control, skill, grace and they tone and condition their bodies for dancing. Once dancers have mastered the discipline of ballet, they can pursue additional training in jazz dance, which hones improvisation skills, teaching dancers to move with the beat and to riff off each other in performance.

Street Jazz is the rawest form of Jazz, blending Jazz and Street Dance together for an intense workout and expresses the hottest moves seen in the latest music videos. This unique style of dance is taken from the classical elements of Jazz, but placed in the modern environment. Basically, it was created to be a "cool" form of jazz incorporating moves from other street dance styles.
