SCHEDULE FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 13-14

JAZZ, TAP and HIP HOP

Jazz (Ballet 2A and above) is a stylized dance form based on ballet and modern technique, and therefore requires previous technical training. Dancers must be at Ballet 2A level before entering the Jazz Program and must be concurrently enrolled in their required ballet classes.

Tap (ages 8 & up) is a rhythm based movement technique and an important part of the well rounded dancer's training. Tap provides a strong sense of musicality, dynamics, and performance quality. There is no ballet requirement for Tap. (For 6 and 7 year olds, see the Primary division.)

Hip Hop (ages 10 & up) is an exciting meld of contemporary funk movement and jazz dance. There is no ballet requirement for Hip Hop.

All ages are as of September 1, 2013

Please note: Classes in bold italics will be held in the Annex Studio, 1952 Dempster, Evanston Plaza
