Jazz & Commercial Jazz

Jazz is a form of dance commonly used in Broadway shows and movies. It is a more contemporary form of dance when compared to ballet and has become an essential part of musical theatre choreography due to its upbeat, high-energy style.

Contemporary dance is the name given to a group of 20th century dance forms. Rather than a specific dance technique, contemporary is a collection of methods developed from modern and postmodern dance, including modern, jazz, lyrical and ballet. It is an expressive form of dance that connects the mind and body through dance movements.

It is a stylised representation of a traditional folk or national dance, usually from European countries, and uses movements and music adapted for the theatre.
