PREBALLET

Jazz is a more free form style of dance. Jazz incorporates technique with energetic turns, leaps and jumps. Dancers enrolled in jazz will develop flexibility and strength through warm ups using body isolations.

A classical style of dance that was developed as a reaction to the restrictions of ballet. Unlike ballet, modern dance does not focus on turnout and extension. Dancers enrolled in modern will enhance their movement quality, range of dynamics, style, and spacial awareness through improvisation and exposure to different styles of elements.  Admission to modern requires enrollment in ballet or combo class.
