Jazz Dancing

WHAT IS JAZZ DANCING?

     Jazz dancing is a kind of theatrical dancing of many styles.  Over several years there were many and varied forms of dance that led to “jazz dancing;” modern dance, theatrical dance, folk dance, show dance, “African” dance, “Street“ dancing and “Hip Hop” are a few of the styles.  An example of jazz dancing present day can be seen in music videos.  However, this is only one form of jazz and one should not be led to believe the only form.  Every young dance student views jazz dancing as fun and energizing.  Along with having fun, we teach a strong technique and dance vocabulary; very important for any style of jazz dance.  The style of jazz taught at the Dance Centre is complimentary to the age of the student.

Beginning students, 7-9/10 years of age, are placed in the one-year “Introduction to Jazz/Tap” combination class.  After one year of study, the student will graduate to the 45-minute single subject class in jazz.  Beginning thru advance level jazz classes are offered to the junior, teen and senior dancers.  Three different times of the dance season, we offer “Hip Hop” and “Lyrical Jazz” Workshops to expose the students to these popular styles.
