A high energy style of dance typically set to current pop music. Leaps jumps and turns are a hallmark of jazz dance. Dancers will begin class with stretch and strengthening exercises, develop their technique through progressions across the floor, and then move to center work where combinations allow the dancers to hone their skills, develop their style, and have fun!
A concurrent ballet class is strongly encouraged, and a requirement for some jazz classes.
