Jazz

Kids & Teens Classes

Is your child full of personality and a little on the bold side, or looking for help coming out of their shell? Students can expect to strut their stuff in Jazz class. Jazz dance is a stylized movement form that has developed in parallel to American popular music. It promotes individuality and performance. Seen on TV, advertising campaigns, on stage and in musicals, Jazz dance is the leader of the entertainment biz. Students will improve musicality, move with power, and learn to attack movement with a vigour that is Jazz. Students in PreIntermediate or higher levels take 2 classes weekly. Because of the demands at higher levels, Intermediate and Senior level students must also take Ballet.
