Jazz dance is a free and expressive dance form. It’s usually very energetic and involves moves such as kicks, leaps, turns and full use of the body. Jazz dance can take on many different forms from lyrical to contemporary jazz to musical theatre styles.
Famous Jazz dancers included the iconic Bob Fosse who had a very particular style which can be recognised by its turned in movements and specific use of the hands or Matt Mattox for the use of isolations and strong technique.
Our Jazz classes are available for anyone in Secondary school or older.
