Jazz is a varied dance style, consisting of unique moves depending on a specific style and/or era of jazz. Predominantly, jazz includes learning and using technique from classical training such as pirouettes and turns, kicks and jumps. Our classes include a mix of traditional jazz through to the modern-funk styles of today.
Jazz is a fun and technical dance style that relies heavily on the teacher’s individual style, originality and improvisation, as jazz dancers incorporate different styles into their own expression of the dance. Jazz dancing often uses bold, dramatic body movements, including body isolations and contractions.
Jazz combines traditional jazz dance exercises such as leaps, turns, runs and kicks with current music.
