Jazz dance is a fusion of kicks, leaps, turns and isolations put to the beat of faster paced music. Music is upbeat and the class is high energy, put to popular music. Emphasis on isolations, (moving one part of the body while the other is still) Suspension (moving through a position rather than stopping there to balance), leaps, turns, and progressions. Jazz class is full of energy, and intensity! This class is a favorite of many.
