LHDC offers a variety of jazz dance classes for you to learn in. Based on ballet technique, jazz offers classes full of energy and fun set to music that is upbeat and rhythmic. Some of the jazz disciplines we offer are:
• Jazz Dance Lessons—We offer a wide range of jazz classes at many levels to get your body moving. We are pleased to be able to offer many diverse styles in jazz dance training. Many studios limit themselves to only one discipline, but here at Lake Harriet Dance Center, we offer the best variety of jazz dance in Minnesota.
• Modern Jazz—This contemporary jazz style began to emerge in the 1950s and can vary in movement and music. Modern jazz will get you moving quickly by incorporating leaps and jumps. Music can vary from the 50s on up to modern pop, so be ready to really move and have fun.
Contemporary dance is a popular form of dance which developed during the middle portion of the twentieth century and has since grown to become one of the dominating performance genres for formally trained dancers throughout the world, with particularly strong popularity in the U.S. and Europe. Although originally informed by and borrowing from classical, modern, and jazz styles, it has since come to incorporate elements from many styles of dance, but due to its popularity amongst trained dancers and some overlap in movement type, it is often perceived as being closely related to modern dance, ballet and other classical concert dance styles.
At Lake Harriet Dance Center, our jazz classes are fun and great for the body. Whether you are a dancer who wishes to advance their dance skills, or someone just looking for a great way to exercise, we have the perfect jazz class for you.
