Students will learn both contemporary and classical jazz styles with a ballet foundation. They will work on jazz technique as well as isolations, leaps, turns, and flexibility. These are elements that will make their dance more interesting and impressive. Jazz combos will be taught weekly. Throughout the year, students will work on a jazz routine that will be performed at the spring recital. Students may use their pink ballet shoes during class but may be asked to order jazz shoes when the costume for the show has been determined.
For students to learn pom routines, they need to work on jazz skills.
