Jazz Classes for Adults

Darlene Zoller, Instructor

Registration is open for summer dance! Click here for more information.


Lyrical Adult Jazz

This class is open to all levels as it will move slow enough that a beginner can follow while more advanced dancers are encouraged to work harder to improve their skills. Some knowledge of basic dance is helpful but not imperative.

This 1.5-hour class includes:

  • 30-minute warm up and stretch
  • 30-minute across the floor work
  • 30-minutes of class material determined weekly depending on the skill level of the class.  

Attention to details, such as arm movements (port de bras), are reinforced weekly. Weekly attendance is recommended but dropping in to a class is not a problem. 

Intermediate/Advanced Adult Jazz

Students must have prior dance training to participate in this class. There is a set warm-up which is easy to follow if you have a dance background. 1.5 hours is divided as follows:

  • 30-minute warmup and stretch
  • 30-minute across the floor work
  • 30-minute combination.

The instructor is a LUIGI trained dancer who teaches classic jazz styles. Weekly attendance is recommended but dropping in to a class is not a problem as new combinations are taught each week. Combination styles will vary from Classic jazz to Broadway jazz with some funk thrown in on occasion.

The class environment is intense in that everyone is there to learn and improve.  The class is fun because the students are happy to be there and it becomes a very friendly, family style environment. Bad moods and egos are left at the door and everyone is encouraged to dance with passion!
