Claylee's Dance Academy - Classes


Jazz dancing is a form of dance that showcases a choreographer's individual style and originality. Jazz dancing is energetic and fun, consisting of unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns. To excel in jazz, dancers need a strong background in ballet, as it encourages grace and balance.

A dancer's bodylines need to be visible. Baggy clothes are generally discouraged. Tights and leotards are fine, but most jazz dancers prefer to wear jazz or dance pants. Jazz pants are usually boot-cut or flared styles, as tight bottoms would restrict ankle movement.

Tops usually worn for jazz include form-fitting tank tops, t-shirts or leotards. Check with your teacher before buying jazz shoes, as many classes have preferences. Students will stretch their muscles to up-beat familiar songs and learn to jump, leap, and turn while incorporating a theatrical form and technique.
