In dance, students will study the elements of hip hop and jazz style dancing. The jazz dance component will expose students to the many forms that make up this diverse genre of dance. Students will study classic jazz technique, lyrical jazz, and contemporary jazz movement. Hip hop is an upbeat, high energy street-style dance that incorporates some technical jazz elements. Classes consist of a warm-up, center work, and traveling progressions, which are all designed to increase flexibility, strength, and technique. Classes will also include learning and creating pieces of choreography and developing performance confidence and expression.
