Jazz is a very energetic dance form that includes jumps, turns, kicks and ﬂoor work. It can be characterized by the technical and sharp movements. Jazz technique hightlights the importance of engaging your core, so that difficult movements can be executed well and performed with ease. Jazz has evolved into a style that not only follows this modern technique, but heavily emphasizes the importance of individuality and the showcase of terms. Jazz is a very umbrella term that takes into account tap, ballet, jazz music and African-American rhythms and dance, since they all come from similar roots. Body coordination, core strength, ballet training and ﬂexibility are key elements for success in this genre.
