About our jazz classes

Prior to the 1950s, jazz dance referred to dance styles that originated from African American vernacular dance. In the 1950s, a new genre of jazz dance—modern jazz dance—emerged, with roots in Caribbean traditional dance. Every individual style of jazz dance has roots traceable to one of these two distinct origins. 

*Note- Allegro teachers will use their expertise to place each dancer in the correct level that is best for their training, this will usually happen within the first month.
