FOSSE…. Eat your heart out!

The fun antics and playful ambition that drives jazz dance is one of the classic favorites of most dancers.  Jazz builds on the fundamentals of physics, core strength, and regiment taught within ballet brought into pop culture and fun music.  Encore hosts a variety of Jazz classes to help young dancers learn how to move, choreograph, and have fun with a variety of music.

Encore offers four levels of jazz dance with two levels of choreography on campus.  Encore’s faculty consists of five jazz dance instructors that have a wide variety of experiences and strengths.  With a focus on leaps, turns, and core strength – jazz is a secondary fundamental (only to ballet) that every well rounded dancer should be an expert at.

From Fosse to modern day choreographers Stacey Tookey and Mandy Moore – Jazz Dance is a building block to really great dancers.
