Jazz

(Ages 6+)

We offer an up-beat Jazz program that is loosely based on the graded Al Gilbert Method. We use a variety of different warm up  exercises each week to keep it entertaining and fun. We do across the floor combinations called progressions and turns to strengthen dancers in technique and give them the ability to learn quickly while supporting Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced level dancers. Jazz students must demonstrate all stretches and combinations with proper posture and technique before continuing to the next level.  All students are evaluated by their teachers and are then placed in their proper grade level. This is not always done by age but by ability. We try very hard to keep students with their appropriate age groups but in some cases you may have a variety of ages.  We encourage dancers to be able to not only do structured jazz but bring a part of their soul to each class while free styling.  This makes for a more well rounded dancer.
