Beg. Jazz Technique

Jazz is a comprehensive class that begins with a thorough warm-up, across-the-floor, ending with a choreographed combination. This art form is informed by traditional African & European folk dances and was influenced by the 1600s enslaved Africans. Appropriate footwear includes Jazz shoes, bear paws, or barefoot.

Beginning: A great place to start if you're interested in a new dance style or have never taken dance classes before. You will be taken through the basic elements of dance, step by step, so you will have a better understanding of the movement and eventually be ready for the next level of classes. This may include rhythm, counting, body isolations, placement, repetition of movements, applying foundational knowledge into dance combinations & common vocabulary.

Technique Classes focus on the placements of the body and pathways of movement that are ideal for executing the dance form. For example, Jazz technique incorporates the alignment of the body for a turn; Hip Hop technique incorporates a bounce or rock for grooving.
