This beginner program allows students to take the 2 most popular forms of dance in one class- jazz and hip-hop. This fusion of jazz and hip-hop teaches fundamental jazz steps and combines the elements of hip-hop moves and contemporary music.
We have found that the combination of jazz and hip-hop is ideal for this age. Students learn the necessary elements of jazz, which are crucial to success in hip-hop, but also get to learn hip-hop moves, which require the coordination and balance learned from jazz. Movements in hip-hop dance are less fluid than other dance styles and it takes a lot of coordination and stamina to master this style of dance. One thing that separates hip-hop dance from other forms of dance is that hip-hop is often more improvisational. When students complete this class and they are ready to progress to the next level, the class will expand and introduce more complex moves and routines.
