WHAT WILL MY STUDENT BE LEARNING?  Modern Jazz is the basis for most musical theatre dance.  In our beginning classes, we will focus on helping students develop coordination, start to build a dancer vocabulary, gain confidence; and learn basic steps, turns and combinations that will be used throughout their artistic career or lifetime as a casual dancer.  Our final presentation will be a mix of these steps combined with theatrical staging and character development, performed to a selection from a popular musical play.
