Jazz is an upbeat fusion of modern, jazz and ballet that explores the use of isolations, syncopation, and balance. Class consists of a high energy warm up and center combinations that are new weekly and/or progressively built upon. Dancers will gain experience with blending techniques while learning dynamic choreography with leaps, turns and turning up the pizzazz! An understanding of the classical vocabulary and previous experience with jazz and/or modern dance is helpful, but not required. Students with little to no dance experience are welcome.
Dance with Me: JAzz 1 (Parents+ ages 7-9)
Dance with me is a way for a parent and their child to learn a new skill together. Both the parent and child are involved in class learning and encouraging each other through the process. This beginning Jazz class builds each dancer as an individual as well as builds teamwork skills. We will begin with a warm up to increase strength and flexibility, build progressions across the floor and end with a super exciting combination. Dance with us!
Jazz shoes or ‘contemporary’ socks, leggings or comfortable fitted pants, and level coordinated leotard are required for youth. Socks available for purchase at Central Studio.
