About the class:
Jazz Funk, also called Street Jazz, borrows a lot of movement from other dance styles. From ballet-modern-hip hop- to lyrical, jazz funk incorporates little bits and pieces of other dance genres and wraps into a funky style that is both fun and expressive! This will be a progressive series that will advance over the course of the 6 week series. All levels will benefit from this class, but beginners are welcome and encouraged!
