Our Jazz curriculum is based on the classical Jazz dance technique, with influences incorporated from modern Jazz and Broadway styles. The Jazz program focuses on flexibility, rhythm, extension, balance, speed, and strong movement, preparing students for a lifetime of dancing. We follow the 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 are also strongly emphasized in the Jazz curriculum.

The second jazz class in our program builds upon the movements and technique that students have already learned.  More combinations and more complex combinations are learned with a faster speed of movement.  Students are expected to be able to memorize all combinations, demonstrate movements independently and learn self-correction.  Students will also continue to develop movement vocabulary, balance, coordination, and body alignment.
