This style focuses on jazz moves that incorporate musical interpretation, synchronization, technical steps, visual effectiveness, variety of movements, skills and control. Portraying the emotion of a piece is a main goal of the dancers. This style allows dancers to really express their personality. There are many styles of Jazz. Most of our Youth Classes focus on Classical or Broadway style Jazz and are upbeat in nature. These styles (along with Lyrical Jazz) use a ballet base in technique that is taught along with the jazz class. Ballet is a recommended class for all dancers ages 7 and up.
