Jazz Curriculum

Ages 5 -18+

The Jazz curriculum is based on classical and modern jazz dance technique, focusing on flexibility, rhythm, extension, balance, speed, and strong movement, preparing students for a lifetime of dancing.

We follow the typical jazz class format of building strength, balance and extension through isolations, rhythmic exercises, floor stretches, across the floor patterns, and dance combinations. The class format remains the same through the different levels, while the movements continue to increase in complexity as students grow technically and physically. Strong stage presence and performance quality are also strongly emphasized.
