Jazz II

Instructor(s): Nikia Jackson

Level: Beginner

Jazz is based on ballet technique layered with traditional jazz movement and includes a proper warm-up, stretches, isolations, across-the-floor progressions, and combinations. This form consists of up-tempo movement executed by leaps, turns, high kicks and hip rolls, allowing a student’s personality to come through their movement by adding their own personal flare. Students will be introduced various styles of jazz to develop as a well rounded dancer. As students progress to higher levels, the curriculum will become increasingly more complex and intricate.
