Modern Jazz Dance Classes
Modern Dance is an extremely relaxed, free style of dancing, in which choreographers make use of emotion and specific moods to design their own dance pieces on. Modern dance uses gravity to the body’s advantage, unlike Ballet that goes against gravity in order to create a light and weightless feeling – almost like flying.
In Modern Jazz the control of the body’s centre is essential as all movement originates from one’s centre. Control of the body allows the maintaining of balance, while being able to execute powerful movements. Modern Jazz classes are based on a moderate amount of stretching. Studio of Motion’s main form of stretching technique originates from the Pilates principles of elongating the muscles and strengthening the core.
