Jazz Dance & Musical Theatre

Teen Jazz dance class students performing at our 29th annual dance recital at Ballard High School Auditorium.

About Our Teen Jazz Dance Classes

This class is an eclectic blend of styles, heavily influenced by Fosse and Luigi techniques, utilizing popular music of the past and present. This fun class builds the technical and expressive abilities necessary for concert jazz and musical theater venues with an emphasis on line, phrasing. coordination and injury prevention.

Jazz I: Starts at the very beginning. It is designed for students who have never had tap before or have studied tap so long ago that they want a complete refresher course.

Jazz I.5: For students who have had 4-6 months of recent tap training.  

Jazz II: Have been studying tap recently and or consistently for a year or more.

Intermediate Jazz: An intermediate is a fairly accomplished dancer who is well versed in jazz dance vocabulary and has the ability to learn complicated tap choreography readily.
