Jazz class is designed to develop student’s stylistic clarity. Classes include a warm-up which utilizes fundamental exercises from the jazz techniques. Classes are designed to work on the following concepts: Correct alignment of torso, pelvis, knees, ankles; clarity of line; clarity of movement initiation & completion; syncopated footwork with a direct relationship to the music; quick directional shifts; grounded use of plié; precise musicality; rigorous athleticism; upper body strength training; floor-work; improvisation; performing style with emphasis on individual personality. All classes are accompanied by recorded music to give students the full range of musical experiences from the 1920's to current popular music.
