Jazz is an energetic and upbeat style of dance. In a jazz dance class students learn the technique to kicks, leaps, turns, change-of-direction and isolations and a groundedness that comes from bent knees and a strong core. As a style, jazz sits somewhere in the middle between ballet and hip hop. We recommend taking a ballet class alongside jazz for the extra boost to strength and fine control that ballet teaches.
