Modern Jazz

This class combines Modern and Jazz foundations and technique.  Modern is based on natural, expressive, and sequential movements. This dance technique was developed in the early 1900’s along with the modern art explosion. Modern Dance expresses individuality and encourages the students to express a broad range of emotions through various qualities of movement. Students will learn techniques from Graham & Cunningham.  Jazz develops isolation movements of specific body parts while incorporating different qualities of movement into choreographed sequences. The foundations of jazz will be based on Luigi's technique.  Improvisation, creative movement, and basic technique are all incorporated into this Modern Jazz class.
