Jazz dancing is a form of dance that enables to showcase the dancer’s individual style, originality and creativity. Every jazz dancer interprets and is free to execute moves and steps in their own way. This type of 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. Our Jazz classes for teens are highly contemporary, designed to work on various techniques and moves with different musical tempos.

TAP

Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sound of one’s tap shoes hitting the floor as a percussive instrument. As such, it is also commonly considered to be a form of music.

There are two major variations of tap dance: rhythm (Jazz) tap and Broadway tap. Broadway tap focuses more on the dance. It is widely performed as a part of musical theater. Rhythm tap focuses more on musicality, and practitioners consider themselves to be a part of the Jazz tradition.

Sol Dance Center's Tap classes are a mixed level class for kids and teens, working on the basics of tap in different tempos and steps. The classes are highly entertaining and exciting and within a short period of time students can enjoy full tap dances.
