CLASS DESCRIPTION:
On top of doing the ballet program above, you are adding a more upbeat style of dance to your weekly program. Jazz is a popular style of dance mostly found on the BROADWAY stage; it brings the vocabulary and elements of ballet to an upbeat piece of music with slightly different details. Although the two classes have slightly different technique elements, the combination program is a great way to apply the discipline of ballet with the fun elements of jazz. Practice makes perfect, this is an amazing way to master the vocabulary and add the upbeat fun of pop music to your child’s dance program.
