Students will learn upbeat and stylized dance moves. Jazz dance is fast-paced and requires high energy. Students will stretch and work on dance technique, as well as learn choreographed routines that move across the floor. Like tap, modern jazz dance is considered to have it's origins in America (with special credit given to Chicagoan Gus Giordano!).
