JAZZ- ages 6-8, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13 & up
Jazz is a fun and fast moving class combining ballet technique with jazz principals and lots of sass! Each class begins with a good 15-20 minute warm up followed by progressions across the floor. We start the first level with a more traditional style of jazz steps including, battements, turns, pirouettes, jazz walks, front and center leaps, pivots, chase’s, and many more basic essentials. As each dancer graduates to the next level, we change the style to a more trendy contemporary approach. We strongly recommend accompanying jazz with a ballet class for additional technique. 1-2 assistants in each class. Levels are categorized by age for your convenience. Ages 6-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13 & up. 50 minute class. Performs in the recital. Jazz shoes required. Fitted dance attire all colors welcome
LEGWORKS CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
*Slow moving **Moderate pace ***Fast pace
Each class will be measured by a star system of 1-3 stars. This is to provide you with a better understanding of what kind of pace each class moves in. Some children may desire a slow moving class while others prefer a more physical and high energy class.
At Legworks class placement is very important. Each level provides a stepping stone used to build a foundation of necessary fundamentals, crucial in dance training. We place our dancers according to ability first and foremost. We feel strongly about giving children the chance to excel at their own individual pace. However, if you are new to our studio, we will place a child according to age first, and advance them as needed. Typically, each child spends two years in each age level before graduating to the next level. We lengthen the curriculum to advance over a two year span. Legworks has developed a set curriculum based on our 36 years of expertise in dance training and is reviewed and updated every season. Our curriculum is genre and level specific. This step by step process will allow each child to be successful in their abilities to learn dance.
