Saturdays, 1:15-2:15 pm
adults, age 18+

Note: This class has been placed on standby. To inquire about this class or to be added to the list to be notified when the class is rescheduled at a later date, please call our offices at 585.454.4596.


In this fun and non-intimidating jazz movement class, adults will be introduced to various types of jazz dance including authentic jazz (jazz and social dance movement developed from the 1920s-1940s), classic jazz (technique influenced by ballet and modern dance forms), and commercial jazz (bringing some sass and swagger into the class!).

The class begins with a warm-up based on the technique of the legendary jazz icon “Luigi” who was the innovator of the world’s first jazz dance technique. His belief was to “take your time – feel what you’re doing” and to “feel from the inside out.“ You can too!
