Jazz & JazzFunk

Jazz Dance has a broad movement vocabulary which emerged circa WW1, with roots in Vaudeville, Broadway and West End musicals. This theatrical style is seen in many 20th century Hollywood films like; West Side Story, Sweet Charity, Fame, Flashdance, A Chorus Line and Chicago, along with TV variety programs and on stage in modern musicals. Choreographers of note include Bob Fosse & Jerome Robbins.

Funk surfaced as a distinct dance genre at the end of the 20th century but has since been caught in the Jazz dance net. Related to Hip-Hop, it typifies moves generated during the choreography of music videos. Both Jazz & Funk developed in parallel with pop music.

PointCookDance students learn established theatrical elements of jazz technique as well as more recent funk vocabulary. Students can complete JazzFunk & Jazz assessments from levels 1 – 10.
