JAZZ focuses on proper technique & artistry at each level. Students learn how to stretch and strengthen the muscles; turn, kick, and leap across the floor combinations; and different styles and techniques through a center floor combination. Students enrolled in jazz are STRONGLY encouraged to take ballet.
JAZZ for ages 7-14 is so exciting because students are of the mature age to receive great benefits from Jazz! We begin to seriously look at basic to intermediate technique and terminology to gain a full understanding of this dance form. Students have the ability to progress past beginner, Intermediate and advance levels depending on their dedication. We begin to seriously look at style and body technique while introducing many Broadway styles of Jazz. Students will have fun exploring Jazz! Parents can help by enrolling them in more than one class a week and making sure that they attend their classes. They have the ability to begin learn more complicated routines and are so excited when getting ready for their recitals. Students rehearse their songs and dances gearing up for our bi-yearly recitals. Participation in our recitals is a requirement as it is part of our program to offer stage performance experience. Students receive great benefits from this wonderful experience!
