Beginner Contemporary Jazz - Dance Classes NYC

Beginner Contemporary Jazz



A fusion of modern, jazz and ballet, this unique style explores a wide range of organic, often angular movements and syncopated rhythms with a strong base in classical technique. The warm up tends to combine the strong and controlled legwork of ballet with modern dance focus on the torso and also employs floorwork to strengthen the dancer’s body.

The class evolves to the learning original choreography, broken down and demonstrated for clear understanding. Designed for the beginner, intermediate and advanced students, an understanding of the classical vocabulary and previous experience with jazz and/or modern dance are helpful.
