What is Jazz Dance?

Jazz Dance (commonly simply referred to in the dance world as “Jazz”) is a style of dance that combines ballet, tap, African, modern dance, and hip-hop and can be performed to almost any type of music.

Although there is a distinguishable Jazz “Technique,” the versatility of this dance style allows much room for creativity and personal expression.

In a Jazz Dance classes at Dance With Joy Studios, you will learn basic Jazz technique and use this technique to develop and play with fun, feel-good choreography to a wide variety of music!

  • Warm-up
  • Basic stretching
  • Across-the-floor sequence/Technique building
  • Learn jazz choreography (new dance every month:)
