Jazz is an upbeat class that focuses on turns, leaps, and intricate styling. It truly is a dynamic style of dance because it can incorporate music from various decades and genres. Dancers will learn how to combine technique with performance.
Tap dance focuses on rhythms and perfecting the timing of each beat. Dancers will explore the floor and the air with their tap technique. They’ll also learn how to tap light and airy vs. how to tap more grounded. As dancers progress, they’ll learn to make their taps clearer and faster.
Classes will begin with a warm-up and stretching to develop technique and flexibility. Dancers will then progress across the floor and end with a dance (jazz and/or tap) in the center.
