Jazz 3 - 6
Jazz is a dance form enhanced by the freedom to use movement with a variety of music styles. Like all dance forms, Jazz comes from Ballet as it requires having a strong center and excellent balance. Jazz includes strengthening and stretching in order to achieve better balance, tone and technique. The Jazz classes include a variety of turns, leaps, jumps and Jazz-based combinations. The Jazz levels coincide with the levels of Ballet and have similar requirements for placement.
- Level 3 - Ages 8 - 11
- Level 4 or A.I. - Ages 10 - 14
- Level 5, 6 - Ages 14 - 18
- Solid color leotard
- Solid color leggings
- Black Jazz shoes
Prima teachers prefer leotards without large mesh cutouts in midriff and/or down the front center
Students must have hair up in a slicked back Ballet bun (or off of face and neck for those with shorter hair)
