Classes will be designed to help each dancer identify and work on specific techniques and skills needed to improve their understanding and performance of these specific dance styles. Tapping is a form of dance that creates rhythm and sounds with different parts of the feet using tap shoes. As the student progresses in tap, footwork becomes quicker and execution of movement is in sync. Focus is on rhythm, musicality, and coordination. Jazz dance is rooted in character and includes varying styles of jazz dance including turns, jumps, leaps and combinations. Classes include strengthening exercises and stretches for flexibility, progressions across the floor, and combinations to include material learned and being worked on. This will be a continuation of Spring A semester and new students are welcome.
