Jazz encompasses many styles: Broadway, Fosse, Contemporary, & Funk to name a few. Specific jazz turns, jumps and leaps are taught in line with correct body alignment. Coordination, flexibility, musicality, endurance and control are also developed. Students at every level enjoy this dynamic style of dance. A variety of jazz choreography will be introduced and explored. This class is a great compliment to ballet training.

Contemporary (9 and up, with previous Dance pre-requisite)

Contemporary dance is the name for a modern concert dance genre. It is not a specific dance technique but a collection of methods, and sometimes tells a story.  Contemporary dance is a mixture of forms that is typically danced to modern music instead of classical music, and usually encompasses ballet, modern, jazz and lyrical.
