All About Jazz at UDA
Jazz allows students to dance to “today’s popular music” from current music artists. Jazz is a fun, high-energy dance form that steals and borrows movement from ballet technique, modern, hip-hop and even ethnic forms of dance. The focus of this class is to build strength, flexibility, body and mental awareness and style; providing the necessary knowledge and skills for possible participation in junior and senior high school extracurricular activities such as dance company, drill team, and musical theatre. Because of the technical demands in jazz, students are encouraged to supplement their jazz training with classical ballet or jazz technique classes.
Jazz Tech Intensive - The main focus of this class is to give dancers the same opportunity and benefits of our normal jazz class without the commitment of learning choreography and participating in UDA’s annual recital. This allows dancers to target the technical aspect of jazz such as leaps, turns and jumps, as well as developing overall strength and flexibility. This class cannot be taken by itself, it is designed to be added as a second class for dancers who are already enrolled in jazz.
