What you'll learn in this jazz dance class:

Journey through the social and sacred folkloric dance traditions, emphasizing the rich history of dance and culture of the African, Caribbean and Black American Dance, including the unique rhythms of Rumba, Salsa and Samba. Each class begins with a warm up of jazz and stretching dance techniques, along with the exercises to guide you to undulate your torso and hips. Class is designed to promote proper alignment, grace and precision of movement. 

Beginning: getting a foundation. For students with some training in the selected style or a similar style. We recommend our Basics, or Intro, level enrollment class as a prerequisite, or at least 3 months prior training. Beginner level is excellent for students returning to dance after an extended absence as well as students who wish to continue training that was recently begun.

*these recommendations are generalizations and vary when there has been a lengthy lapse in training; depends on the frequency of training; and can vary with styles. We recommend that you speak with your instructors to see if you are attending the appropriate class.
