In this class, children will have the opportunity to explore the arts through lyrical and jazz dance. They will learn technique while also learning two routines for our JAM Variety show in June. This spring the students will be doing a dance in the style of lyrical and a dance in the style of jazz. The style of Lyrical is about dancing to the meaning of the music. It is a flowy dance style that is a cross between jazz and ballet. Jazz is a more upbeat dance. Classes will always start with a time of stretching followed by a focus on technique. The rest of the class time will focus on teaching the lyrical and jazz routine to the students. Students will need comfortable clothes to dance in (ex: leotards, leggings, t-shirts, workout clothes, etc.). Students will need dance paws for this class. Students can choose to get jazz shoes or wear dance paws for both styles. They can be purchased on Amazon or on a dance wear website. This class is for students who are brand new to dancing or who have been dancing for years, all are welcome!
