CLASSES BEGIN MONDAY AUGUST 26
Just like jazz music is full of life and improvisation, jazz dance is full of energy and creativity. BYPC's jazz dance classes range for all ages and abilities to provide students with everything from introductory movement to advance technique. Students in these jazz dance classes at our Bedford, NH studio learn a wide variety of jazz styles that showcase how the genre of dance has evolved over the years and fits within different applications from music videos to Broadway shows.
This BYPC tap and jazz combination class introduces students to the foundations of dance including ballet, tap, and jazz. Students begin with a center warm-up on the floor for stretching and to developing strong feet and ankles, and then they progress to exercises for finding balance. Students perform across the floor movements and leaps for developing smooth weight transferal and foot strength. During the second half of the class, dancers perform ankle warm-ups, practice steps and rhythms, and work both in the center of the studio and across the floor.

Jazz I is a continuation of the the Jazz/Tap Combo with a focus on Jazz methods, skills and choreography. It is also a great introduction for students who are new to class. No experience needed just a desire to have fun dancing!

Instruction is aimed at developing musicality, balance, muscular / aerobic endurance, flexibility, and proper body alignment.
