What Is Jazz Dance?
Jazz dance is a form of modern dance which is heavily influence by the sounds, rhythms, and techniques of jazz music. This Genre is fast and fun. It uses up beat music and leaps and turns to interpret traditional and not so-traditional movements. Just like Hip Hop, most of the songs we dance jazz to ‘nowadays’ are pop songs. The fusion of fun upbeat movements and ballet technique are sure to keep you wanting more!

Jazz Dance originally emerged in America in the early twentieth century. However, as time passed, the term “Jazz Dance” has been used in ways that often have little or nothing to do with Jazz Music. This is called Modern Jazz.
