Welcome to the captivating world of Jazz at Studio C! In this class, dancers will embark on a journey of discovering the foundations of jazz technique and terminology. Through a combination of invigorating warm-ups, engaging center exercises, exciting across-the-floor movements, and captivating choreography, your dancer will experience the magic of Jazz.
Jazz is a dynamic and expressive dance style that allows dancers to showcase their individuality and personality. In this class, we focus on building a strong technical foundation by emphasizing proper technique and terminology. Your dancer will learn the essential elements of jazz, including jumps, turns, leaps, and intricate footwork.
Through dedicated practice, your dancer will enhance their strength and flexibility, enabling them to execute powerful and dynamic movements with grace and precision. They will become comfortable working in both parallel and turned out positions, broadening their range of motion and expanding their dance vocabulary.
As your dancer progresses in their Jazz training, they will also witness the growth of their memory and performance skills. They will learn to memorize choreography, execute it with confidence and style, and captivate audiences with their stage presence.
At Studio C, we highly recommend supplementing Jazz training with Ballet classes. Ballet serves as the foundation for many dance styles, including Jazz. By combining Jazz with Ballet, your dancer will develop proper alignment, posture, and strength, which will further enhance their overall dance technique and artistry.
Our experienced instructors are passionate about nurturing each dancer’s potential. They create a supportive and encouraging environment where dancers can grow, learn, and thrive. We prioritize the safety and well-being of our students, ensuring that proper technique and injury prevention are always at the forefront of our instruction.
Join us in our Jazz class and watch as your dancer shines with confidence, technique, and passion. Enroll today and let the rhythmic and expressive world of Jazz ignite their love for dance and unleash their true artistic potential!

What is your attendance policy?
Students are expected to attend classes for which they are registered. If a student misses 4 consecutive classes without making formal arrangements with studio instructors and/or administration, his/her space will be forfeited in the class for the next month. Students with excessive absences will not be permitted to perform in our annual recital.
Are parents allowed to stay in class to watch?
“WATCH DAYS” will be the first full week in November and April. This is the lesson parents and visitors are welcome to view in class. Remember, this is your day to see your child’s progress.
Please do not disturb the class by visiting amongst yourselves. Turn the ringer on the phone down. Please keep your little ones seated and quiet. In other lessons, parents are asked to walk their child inside the building and then wait in the waiting room, run a quick errand, or treat themselves to a walk around the block! This enables the dance instructors to keep the attention of the students, as well as helps those who may be a little reluctant to feel more at ease.
