Course Description

Jazz Dance covers American jazz-inspired movement techniques developed for musical theater, film and television. Developed by fusing African American social dance forms with Ballet, Modern and Tap dances, Jazz Dance emphasizes body-lines, flexible torso, exaggerated movements of individual body parts, isolations and precise footwork. Jazz dance is ever-changing because it reflects the cultural trends of the times. In multiple styles of Jazz dance, including lyrical and blues, musical theater, and hip hop/street/funk styles, students will work towards mastery at the beginning level.
