This fun class builds the technical and expressive abilities necessary for concert jazz and musical theater venues with an emphasis on line, phrasing. coordination and injury prevention.

Jazz I.5: For students who have had 4-6 months of recent jazz training.  

Jazz II: Have been studying jazz recently and or consistently for a year or more.

Intermediate Jazz: An intermediate is a fairly accomplished dancer who is well versed in jazz dance vocabulary and has the ability to learn complicated jazz choreography readily.

Testimonial

We asked Dennis Landmesser, how he liked his live streamed online dance class today with instructor Dakota Crist.

The dance class today with Dakota was more than I could have hoped to expect.  I don't know what to rave about more, the quality of the production or the excellence to the class.  

Her instructions were clear and complete and made perfect sense.  The corrections were thoughtful and meaningful.  Dakota is golden and to be highly valued.
