WHAT IS JAZZ?

AGES 6+

 

Jazz dance is a lively and expressive dance form with roots in African American culture and influences from ballet, modern dance, and tap. Emerging in the early 20th century, it quickly gained popularity for its energetic and rhythmic style, showcased in dance halls and on Broadway. Pioneers like Jack Cole, Bob Fosse, and Katherine Dunham have greatly contributed to its evolution, making jazz dance a versatile and dynamic art form.

 

At the School of Dance, our mission is to help students grow as performing artists and dancers by focusing on the joy and creativity of jazz dance, free from the pressure of competitions. We provide a supportive environment that honors the rich history of jazz dance while emphasizing technical proficiency, performance quality, and individual expression. Our goal is to cultivate a love for dance and foster the artistic development of each student.
