Jazz is a classification shared by a broad range of dance styles. It emerged, with roots in Caribbean traditional dance. It is up beat with turns, leaps and tricks. Ballet technique is an important aspect of jazz because many of the same steps are used. Isolations are unique to jazz dance. This is where one part of the body is used while all other parts are still. Core strength and center control are important for executing isolations and powerful movements while maintaining balance. Unlike ballet, jazz is an anything goes style. The only limits are the imagination of the choreographer and dancer.
