What is jazz dance?
Jazz dance is a common form of dance used in musical theatre and the commercial and entertainment industries. It has its roots in social dance and is heavily influenced by African-American traditions. Jazz dance technique is based on elements of ballet and modern dance and incorporates syncopation and isolations of the body.
Students of all levels work on gaining strength, flexibility, endurance, coordination, musicality, and performance skills. Classes include a warm-up, technique exercises, across-the-floor exercises, choreography, and stretches. Various styles are covered throughout the term: Broadway, funky, lyrical, contemporary, thrash, and everything in between. Above all, Cadance classes allow students to work on their jazz dance technique in a fun, no-pressure atmosphere!
