Jazz is an artsy dance form which evolves and changes with the latest popular music styles. Students work on placement and technique while learning modern and contemporary Jazz styles. The class consists of warm-ups, floor progressions and combinations. We concentrate on keeping up with the times but choreography is very creative and stylist.
This is a blend of Jazz, Ballet and Modern which uses movement to interpret the lyrics of popular songs. Dramatic content and beautiful line make the dancer more aware of body control and projection. This class is by invitation only.
The latest in popular street and video moves, this style is incorporated into the regular jazz based classes.
This dance form combines rhythmic foot patterns with coordinating body movements. Tap dance has historical roots which are integrated into all Tap classes. Tap Masters' works are included in most upper level classes.
Clogging (Ages 9 & Up)
