Jazz originated from African dance traditions in the early 40’s & 50’s. It took on a more polished Broadway theater type flare and then in the 90’s and early to mid 2000’s a very pop based style also known as “Hot Jazz” as well as a jazz funk. At Dance Grosse Ile, we teach traditional classical jazz and mix it up with jazz funk as well as Hot Jazz. Jazz is most popular in music videos, commercials and movies. The music in class is always upbeat, popular and current. All music is age appropriate. We also teach separate classes in both genres of Jazz and Hip Hop as well!
Hip-Hop is one of the most popular dance styles. You can find hip-hop in T.V. commercials, music videos and movies such as ‘Step Up’ as well as on Broadway. Classes are structured in the traditional hip-hop format; Isolations, stretching, dance technique, progressive movements, as well as emphasis on tricks” such as, breaking, popping and locking and more.
Taught mostly in the competition levels, is most commonly known for it’s Broadway popularity. It’s a blend of dance, music and drama. Students learn how to pantomime song (while dancing and acting), combining these three elements to form an outstanding performance. If you love musicals you’ll love theater dance! We incorporate theater dance in our competitive levels but teach theater dance workshops and camps in the summer for all age and skill levels!
