Jazz

Jazz is a fun dance style that relies heavily on originality and improvisation. Many jazz dancers mix different styles into their dancing, incorporating their own expression. Jazz dancing often uses bold, dramatic body movements, including body isolations and contractions.

We offer 3 levels of Jazz classes: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced.

Beginner Jazz
Students in beginner jazz are typically in our Level 1 through Level 3 tap, ballet, and tumbling classes. Students in this class range in age from approximately 5-10 years old, but are also placed in this class based on ability.

Intermediate Jazz
Students in intermediate jazz are typically in our Level 3-4 ballet and tap classes.  Students in this class range in age from approximately 8-13 year old, but are also placed in this class based on ability.

Advanced Jazz
