About the Style
Jazz dancing is a form of dance that originated in African American communities in the early 20th century. It was called “jass” or “jazz” because it combined elements from different styles of music, including ragtime and blues. The style is characterized by its fast pace, syncopated rhythms, specific steps and footwork, improvisational, and individualism.
Jazz dance has been around for quite some time, but it continues to evolve today! There are many different variations of jazz dancing out there—from modern jazz to ballet-based styles like lyrical jazz (also known as contemporary jazz). You’ll find some forms that blend different dance styles, like hip-hop or ballet, into their routines!
People often think of jazz as synonymous with swing dancing because they share similar roots in African American communities. They were both born out of necessity when slavery was abolished in America during the 19th century. However, the style has now evolved into one of the most expressive dance styles.
