Jazz is an extremely free form of dance. It involves the coordination of all parts of the body through weight transference and many changes of rhythm, not all jazz has to be quick paced with fancy footwork like we see in modern video clips we also dive into the more soulful experience

Contemporary is more abstract and raw where students get to think more "outside the box". This style embodies a wider range of styles such as Classical, Jazz and lyrical.
