Jazz Dance

Contortion is part of the Advanced Acrobatics program at KaliAndrews Dance Company in Ottawa

Jazz dance technique was designed to rebel against traditional ballet. Jazz dance is energetic and fun, showcasing exaggerated movements, fancy footwork, big leaps and fast turns with an attitude that the dancer conveys to the audience. This style of dance is faster than ballet, which most students find more enjoyable and easier to follow. However to excel in jazz, dancers need a strong background in ballet.

KaliAndrews Dance Company offers Jazz dance classes for all ages. Beginners and experienced dancers are welcome. In our syllabus-based jazz classes, students will study exam preparation work in Term 1 and move into preparation for our recital performance throughout Term 2.

Each semester runs for 18 weeks. Term 1 includes an optional exam after the semester is complete (grade level classes only). Term 2 includes a Professional Performance in KADC’s Year-End Recital.
