Tied to rap and street music, hip hop has become one of the most popular forms of American jazz dance. In this class, students learn the latest dance steps: hip hop, street funk, video jazz and other cool ways to move. To ensure a proper foundation in dance for all jazz and hip hop students, ballet is recommended.
Hip Hop Dress Code:
JLDC regulation black leotard, black jazz pants and black hip hop sneakers.
Jazz and Tap are stylized, truly American forms of dance, based on fundamental ballet training and inspired by the pulse of today’s popular music. The jazz class consists of center floor exercises to develop proper technique, strength, and flexibility and includes progressions and dance combinations. A sound foundation in tap is established by learning standard tap vocabulary upon which more intricate footwork may be taught.
Jazz/Tap Dress Code:
JLDC regulation black leotard, black jazz pants, black tap shoes and tan jazz shoes.
