Jazz

Jazz Dance developed out of the various multicultural dance styles in the Untied States in the early 1920s. Original African and South American movement patterns were combined with classic western dance forms. Jazz Dance is a holistic body and movement training. Typical features are Insulation, Polycentric, and Contraction/Release. There are countless styles such as Lyric Jazz, Funky Jazz, Modern Jazz, etc. As a contemporary dance form, it is subject to constant changes and developments. Our renowned instructors present you the abundant and colorful facets of this dance.
