In this class, we'll discuss the European influences infused into the Africanistic roots of jazz dance. Dancers will explore how jazz dance went from the Savoy Ballroom to the concert stage. The movement vocabulary for this course will surround the “coolness” of jazz, smooth, fluid, lyrical, subtle and blue. There will be an emphasis on strength, flexibility, balance, alignment, coordination, musicality, body awareness and artistic expression.
