A stylized form of theatrical dancing influenced by the musical styles of each succeeding decade. Jazz technique is a blend of classical ballet, American modern dance, African traditional dance and other varied techniques brought to us from every corner of the world. This class will involve stretching techniques as well as rhythm and coordination skills. Jazz is considered one of the “core” dance techniques and is essential for both recreational and serious dancers. Ballet is required to enter this form of dance. Suggested classes that will help further this study: Ballet technique, Modern, Leaps & Turns and Acrobatics.
