Jazz Dance is a modern dance form that originated in the African-American community of the late 1800s. While the music was extremely popular, Jazz Dance slowly gained popularity because of its uniqueness in moves that matched the tempo of the music. Jazz Dance involves sensual body movements while mixing elements from tap dance, ballet and other social dance forms. With fine choreography and structure, Jazz brings out the dancer’s personality and skills, because this dance is attuned to the best of the dancer’s skills and music being played.
Jazz dance is different from many traditional dance forms as it promotes freedom of expression and individuality. The dancers have the freedom to improvise while practising their routines, and express their emotions, even while covering the most basic steps. It is a dance style ideal for the creative thinker, for those who can express their emotions with the slightest change in the body language and body movements. Choice of music is extremely critical for this dance form, for it dictates just how intense, how light, how rigid or how fluid does the performance need to be. The connect between the music piece to play, and dance moves, thus, are extremely important.

Various Jumps and twists require a lot of energy and strong leg movement for body balance, which leads to the stronger calf muscles and quads. This dance form also enhances body flexibility.
