Jazz

Modern dance is an ever-changing dance form that focuses on musicality and expression to shape movements and choreography. Structured technical exercises that condition the body for strength, coordination and flexibility are also incorporated. This is an expressive style of dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, contemporary jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Modern/Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements.
