Jazz/Lyrical/Contemporary (ages 5-18 years)
Jazz is one of EDC's most popular programs!
There are three types of jazz offered at Elite. Classic Jazz, Lyrical Jazz and Contemporary Jazz.
Classic Jazz consists of fast controlled movements including jumps, leaps and extensions. A dynamic dance genre with an uptempo quality, this genre is fast-paced and athletic with lots of fun and interesting combinations.
Lyrical Jazz can be viewed as a combination of ballet technique with jazz lines. Due to the intermediate nature of Lyrical Jazz, we introduce Lyrical as part of the Jazz curriculum beginning at the Junior level.
Contemporary Jazz, often known simply as "Contemporary", explores levels and lines, shapes and movement phrases outside of the confines of traditional dance lines. This genre is best explored by the intermediate to advanced dancer. Contemporary is included as a component of the Junior and Teen Jazz classes.
