Jazz dance emphasizes a strong technical foundation that enables a dancer to focus on the stylistic and performance aspects of dance. Technique is essential for any dancer who wants to persue a career in dance.
There are several different styles of jazz in the world of dance (Funky jazz, Commercial jazz, Broadway jazz and Lyrical jazz), at TDM we keep up to date and push our dancers, giving guidance for future career paths.
Jazz classes require some form of moderate intensity stretching in order to warm up the muscles and help prevent injuries. Dancers will work with our expert’s teachers on several styles and performances pieces through out the year. This class is a must for any dancer starting out.
