"While it has become a fine art form, originally jazz dance was designed to entertain, and even the basic steps have a showy, extreme feel to them." - Rachel Hanson, Choreographer

Jazz dance is a fun, fast, and fancy style of dance for the energetic and passionate dancer who's ready to give it everything they've got. Jazz dancing is an excellent way to challenge oneself, build strength, develop amazing coordination, increase endurance, and build self-confidence.

Class Goal
To have fun learning how to master control and performance, build self-confidence, and dance like a king or queen in a supportive, challenging, and empowering atmosphere.

Our jazz programs are fun, upbeat classes for the creative and passionate dancer. Miss Serenity, our jazz dance guru, encourages, motivates, and inspires starr students to soar to new heights--both literally and figuratively.

Our 3 to 11-year-old programs use progressive lesson plans and playful stories to empower our dancers and encourage creativity while learning jazz basics, balance, coordination, teamwork, and other classroom and social skills, including listening and taking turns.

Our pre-teen and teen programs focus on safe and proper technique and alignment, which requires learning how to work with our body instead of against it. Students learn jumps, turns, tricks, and all of the jazz basics. Because there are so many different styles of jazz dance, we will use an eclectic approach, teaching different roots and styles.
