Groove to the music of the world in jazz. A mixture of African, European and American dance styles, jazz dance stretches, elaborates and even breaks the rules of classical dance. Often set to popular music, it is the dance form of MTV and the musical theater. Students will explore the different kinds of jazz dance and performance using high energy music and choreography. Because the foundation of jazz dance is ballet, concurrent enrollment in a ballet class is recommended for lower levels, and required for advanced dancers in levels 3 and 4.
Make music with your feet in this popular American dance form! Students receive a solid grounding in classical tap technique while exploring rhythm and music. Tap dancing expands the mind's ability to remember and repeat patterns, developing mental concentration and physical coordination.
