Beginning Tap/Jazz


Students will learn the fundamentals of tap and jazz dance styles. Dancers will work on coordination and rhythm along with proper execution of basic technique. Tap will provide students with practice in leg and foot coordination, timing, and rhythm. With skills derived from ballet technique, Jazz will work on isolations, stretching, and basic steps such as pas de bourres and pivot turns. This class will perform two dances in presentations and recital.
