Jazz is an upbeat class incorporating a free-style form of movement using today’s popular music. The goal is to have fun learning to dance, and for kids to develop expression, learn to move to the music, and get a good workout. This class is about pure jazz technique, good music, and LOTS of fun!
Jazz dance originated from African American dance in the late 1800’s to mid-1900’s. After the 1950’s the essence of Caribbean traditional dance was made into a performing art. Jazz dance then evolved into a new smooth style on Broadway and is now taught and known as Modern Jazz.
