Jazz 1 is a 60 minute beginning jazz class for students ages 7 and up who have little or no previous jazz experience. Students must be at least 7 by October 1 of the school year in which class begins. Our jazz classes follow a specific progressive curriculum that builds from year to year; all beginners over age 7 need to start here. It is common for students to remain in the same jazz level for more than one year; this is not an indication of a lack of progress. Students in Jazz 1 wanting to progress as much as possible are strongly encouraged to co-enroll in a ballet class.
Dress code is a black tank pinch front leotard, ballet pink OR tan tights, optional black dance shorts or pants (no bare legs), tan slip on jazz shoes. All hair secured in a pony tail, braid or bun.
