Class Descriptions

Contemporary Jazz

A fusion of Ballet, Modern, and Jazz, Slam’s unique style explores a wide range of organic, often angular movements that are Graham inspired with a strong base in classical technique. His Contemporary class emphasizes artistry and musicality, while it challenges the dancer to move in new, unconventional ways.
Starting with a warm-up of Modern-influenced, Ballet-based exercises that focus on proper execution and alignment, the class evolves to the learning of Slam’s original choreography, broken down and demonstrated for clear understanding. Slam’s emphasis on proper use of breathing is another strong base in his class. Designed for intermediate students, an understanding of the classical vocabulary and previous experience with Jazz and/or Modern dance are helpful.
