Jazz

Our jazz dance classes incorporate classical jazz technique as influenced by Gus Giordano. This fluid style blends movements from classical ballet, modern dance, and other world forms. There will be a strong focus on isolations of the pelvis, torso, and other body parts. Additionally, dancers will work mostly in parallel.

The syllabus for these classes supplements that of the classical ballet classes, reiterating important elements that are critical for progression.

Please note that both levels 3 and 4 require teacher approval. To schedule a placement for these levels, please contact Kate Grochowski, Dance Team Director and Teacher.
