This class combines the disciplines of jazz and tap, giving the dancer exposure to both genres in a 45 minute class.
Jazz is the style of dance often seen on Broadway or television. Students warm up with stretching, isolations, strengthening exercises, and “across the floor” exercises including turns and leaps. We’ll incorporate a combination that is usually fast-paced, rhythmically-based and danced to traditional jazz music and uplifting popular music. Jazz is a great discipline to help a dancer discover the joy of moving.
Tap is a discipline in which sounds and rhythms are created with tap shoes. Students not only learn the fundamentals of tap including shuffles, time steps and flaps, but also important jazz techniques in class. Traditional jazz music and uplifting popular music will be used in class.
What do we wear?
Black or lavender leotard or solid-color, form fitting top, black form fitting capris or dance shorts with tights, tan split-sole jazz shoes without laces and/or black patent leather tap shoes. All dress code items are available for purchase at Prairie School of Dance. Please tie hair back away from face.
What is the cost?
45 minute Jazz/Tap classes are charged at $57 per month.
