Ages 6 and up
Jazz classes are offered to all ballet students from Ballet A through Advanced. Jazz classes are also offered to students age 6 and above who wish to pursue forms of dance other than ballet. Jazz classes have a warm-up and progression section of class. During progressions, teachers demonstrate how to break down the various turns and jumps that will be used later in the class during combinations. Jazz classes also offer improvisation so that the dancer learns how to think on the spot. Many auditions now require improvisation!
