With African American roots and born during the jazz music age, Jazz dance is an earthy form of dance. While much of ballet technique can be spotted in a Jazz class, the execution is looser, heavier and left more to the dancers' interpretation. Jazz can take on different styles such as Musical Theatre, Funk, Modern, Broadway or Ethnic. Students enrolled in Jazz benefit from training in Ballet, but learn individuality and emotional execution in a Jazz class.
