Jazz at Full Circle Studio
- Jazz dance developed out of ballet, and is a mainstay of American Musical Theater. The influences Jazz dance has incorporated over the years come from African dances and rhythms. Jazz dance takes the body off-center, turns the legs in instead of out, and the form is usually done in jazz shoes, which have a small heel, but otherwise resemble a ballet shoe. Jazz is also the basis of the contemporary dance form known as Hip-Hop. Our jazz classes will introduce the wide spectrum of movements that have become a part of the jazz dance form.
