Jazz and Contemporary Dance Camp
This camp is for students that have an advanced beginning or above level of dance experience and would like to learn/improve upon jazz and contemporary dance technique. Jazz dance is an exciting and ever-evolving dance form full of rhythm, syncopation, life, and passion. Within this style students will learn body isolations, strong lines, rhythm combinations, turns, leaps, and across the floor combinations. Contemporary dance combines elements of ballet, jazz, and modern dance while focusing on the lyrics in a song to enhance movement. Within this style students will learn floor work, Horton technique, release technique, and emotion through dance. Each day will begin with either a jazz or contemporary technique class and will be followed by a choreography session for that style. Snack and craft activity breaks will also be intertwined between dance sessions throughout the camp day. All choreography learned throughout the week will be put together in a demonstration for parents during the last 30 minutes of the final camp day.
