Jazz (Ages 7+)

Class Description

Jazz dance is a dynamic and popular style of dance that emphasizes flexibility, strength, and technique. This style of dance helps dancers improve their coordination, rhythm, and grace while learning a contemporary approach to movement. With a focus on developing a strong technical foundation combined with creativity, style, and body awareness, jazz dance is a fun, fast-paced, and energetic class.

To begin, dancers will warm up with a combination of cardio and stretching exercises designed to prepare the body for movement. After the warm-up, dancers will move to the barre to learn proper positioning and technique. From there, they will learn jazz steps that travel from one side of the room to the other, or steps that are performed center floor. These steps will then be incorporated into routines and dance combinations, allowing dancers to hone their skills and develop their own unique style.

Diversity follows the ADAPT Jazz syllabus, which provides a comprehensive and structured approach to learning jazz dance. With a focus on technique and creativity, this class is perfect for anyone looking for a fun, supportive and engaging environment.
