Quincy’s American Jazz dance class will focus on the musical, lyrical and contemporary aspects of Jazz dance, which pulls from the inspirations from studying with Mary Brienza, Troy Powell, Sharon Wong, Fred Benjamin, Christian von Howard, and the late Luigi. There will be different styles in the choreography we’ll work on from week to week such as lyrical, funky, contemporary or broadway musical styles.
Furthermore we will focus on the angles, lines, and use of the pelvis, and hips from center, across the floor, and in the combinations. We will also work on supporting ones center (core) when moving by using the breath to allow the liberty of movement through ones body to complete your lines when moving from slow to fast by being grounded so you the dancer, can make the smallest movement/gesture take on the biggest meaning. And, most importantly, how to find or define your character choices in the choreography through coaching you, the dancers.
