Jazz Dance Classes Sydney
Commercial jazz is everything you see in the music and entertainment industry today. Like every other style of dance it relies on good technical training.
Jazz is an exciting and ever-evolving dance form. Once the home of fan kicks and shimmies, modern ideas of Jazz (much like the music) incorporates a broad range of dance styles. Jazz can be traced back to African American dance and Caribbean traditional dance with early dancers such as Joe Frisco pioneering the style. It wouldn’t be until 1950 that pioneers like Katherine Dunham that Jazz Dance would emerge as a performing art and dominate the entertainment world industry.
In modern times, jazz dance takes many different forms and is performed in many different venues. In particular jazz dance thrives in dance schools and plays an integral role in musical theatre choreography. Jazz dance is sometimes combined with other dance styles as appropriate for the particular show.
