Jazz is a high energy Broadway dance form focusing on technique, style, flexibility, and coordination. These skills are developed within our class structure through warm-up exercises and progressions incorporating kicks, jumps, and turns. Students dance to up-tempo music, while expression and style through dynamic movement are encouraged in combinations and Jazz dance routines.

Lyrical Jazz, (or just “Lyrical”) is a more fluid form of Jazz dance featuring sustained and controlled movements, with the elegance and grace of Ballet. Lyrics of modern-day ballads are expressed through dramatic and expressive movements, perfect for developing artistic and expressive sensibilities, while demanding strong technique and a background in Ballet. To excel in Jazz, students are encouraged to train concurrently in Ballet.
