Each week, jazz students move across the floor and put steps together in combinations that develop strength, flexibility and musicality. This unique American dance style draws its inspiration from the jazz greats of the past as well as today’s contemporary music. An ever-changing art form, jazz reflects popular culture while helping to build versatile dancers who can leap, turn, balance – and have a fabulous time while doing it!
