We’ll focus on all the proper techniques of jazz, lyrical, modern and ballet dance (jazz walks, pirouettes, jumps, etc) -- contemporary dance styles. This is a great class for youth who want a bit less structure than ballet but more technique than hip-hop. Most students are barefoot, but jazz or ballet shoes can be worn. This is a beginning class geared towards kids ages 9-13.
