Jazz Dance

When students reach the age of seven years I will begin introducing elements of Jazz dance into their combination class. Many eight year olds will have Jazz routines in our annual Recital. EXTRA JAZZ class is available for students who wish to jazz dance twice a week.

Many parents ask "What is Jazz?" The term encompasses many styles of dance. A simple definition is Jazz dance is dance to jazz music. But it also includes popular music, rock music, blues, and show music. Mostbroadway style dancewould be called jazz. Because jazz dance is based on the popular culture of America it has historical roots that have changed over time.

Jazz uses the language of ballet such as plie, jete, and pirouette, but puts the moves together in a different way. I try to introduce different styles and periods of jazz to my students. Jazz dance is fun but requires much training in order to do well.
