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.

Dennis Landmesser

We asked Dennis Landmesser, how he liked his live streamed class today with instructor Dakota Crist.

The class today with Dakota was more than I could have hoped to expect.  I don't know what to rave about more, the quality of the production or the excellence to the class.  Dakota thought to ask at the start of class if there were any injuries which was especially  meaningful to me today because I have a sore knee.  Her instructions were clear and complete and made perfect sense.  The corrections were thoughtful and meaningful.  Dakota is golden and to be highly valued.

Since March, I've suffered through six months of ZOOM frustrations.  ADI has excelled in solving that misery.  I could have been watching a high definition BlueRay with Dolby sound.  

Thanks for asking,

Dennis Landmesser
