Jazz Dance is based on the techniques of ballet, modern, and is always fun for any dancer at any level! Dancers will continue to develop strength, flexibility and coordination with each level of our jazz classes while continuing to work toward more complex dance and performance skills. Emphasis will be placed on proper technique, stamina, jazz styles, musicality, and performance. With each level, classes will move at a faster pace with more content added to their repertoire than the level prior.
Prerequisite: * Prerequisite: Fundamentals of Dance or at least two-three 9 week session of a musical theatre beginner class.
