Jazz dance is a showcase for a dancer to express their own individual style. It is a fun and energetic style of dance hugely popular today. Of course all dancers who truly excel at jazz have a strong background in ballet, which emphasizes grace and technique.
At Ballet Montreal dancers are taught jazz appropriate to their abilities and age groups.
Jazz dancers enjoy individual as well as group dances learning all the basic steps required.
Levels are based on age and previous experience as well as other dance backgrounds. While we encourage all dancers to have a basis in ballet it is not compulsory and many younger students enjoy the more relaxed and fun aspects of jazz.
