Top 5 Reasons to Take Jazz


One of the popular styles of dance around the world is jazz! Jazz is a combination of many dance styles including ethnic dance, social dance and even ballet.


Why take Jazz? Here are the top 5 reasons:


1. Exercise/Physical Fitness


The most obvious perk of joining a jazz class is the health benefits. Jazz is a fast paced, quick moving, high energy dance style. Jazz will increase flexibility, strength, coordination and stamina.


2. Muscle memory


Jazz is a great way to enhance muscle memory. Dancers improve their level of focus as they get completely immersed with the upbeat music while memorizing choreography.


3. Gain Focus


Jazz requires a lot of movement and energy, but it doesn’t just work your body from the neck down. It also requires you to strengthen your memory. Dancers memorize the moves as they practice and eventually perform. Focusing the mind relieves stress and allows you to relax.


4. It’s fun


Jazz is fun! Jazz is a fast-paced class with fun, modern music.
