Ballet & Jazz

Ballet/Jazz Combo

This powerhouse combination of styles allows dancers to build a strong foundation in both styles and lay the groundwork towards becoming strong, graceful, and technically proficient dancers. Half of the class is spent focusing on ballet and the other half on jazz.The jazz portion of the class begins with a brief warm-up, followed by center, across the floor, and a dance combination. The ballet portion of the class begins with barre work followed by center and across the floor. Jazz builds on the ballet foundations, adding opportunities for more freedom of movement, expression, and increasingly up-tempo and explosive dance steps. A definite must for the young dance exploring diverse and more serious training!

Emphasis is on:

  • developing turnout
  • fluidity of expression
  • balance
  • flexibility
  • ballet vocabulary
