Jazz

Jazz is a rhythmic, percussive dance form seen primarily in commercial venues such as Broadway shows, The Academy Awards, dance revues and music videos. Evolving from a blend of European and African traditional social dances, it assimilated into the American culture, with Ballet and Modern Dance contributing to its elegance and African Dance providing its rhythmic propulsion and percussive style. Jazz emphasizes the control and motion of the body with freedom of style and expression. Classes consist of stretching, isolations, and center floor combinations including coordination and cardiovascular exercise.
