Topics and Scope
Untitled document
I.      Intermediate Warm-up
       A.  Intermediate warm-up consists of body movements and
           stretching motions designed to increase blood flow to
           the muscles.
       B.  Isolations will be incorporated during this section of
           the class, as well as large muscle group strengthening.
II.     Intermediate Floor Stretch and Strengthening
       A.  Once the body temperature has been raised by the general
           warm-up, the body will be able to stretch more
           effectively.
       B.  Flexibility exercises will be performed concentrating
           primarily on the legs.
       C.  These stretches are intermingled with other floor work
           to strengthen the muscles of the body used by dances;
           i.e. the abdominals and gluteals.
III.        Intermediate Jazz Technique
       A.  Proper posture and alignment aid in the efficiency and
           safety of movement.
       B.  A sense of "center" is aspired toward balance and
           turning techniques.
       C.  The building of strength of specific jazz positions is
           also addressed, as well as maintaining the foundational
           technical skills brought to class from previous ballet
           training.
IV.     Intermediate Across the Floor
       A.  During this portion of the class, individual movements
           that will later be put into longer combinations of
           choreography are rehearsed and perfected.
       B.  Among other moves, the dancer can expect to practice leg
           extensions, elevations and turns.
       C.  This section of class is devoted to the linking of
           movements into sequences and the development of the
           mind-body relationship (neuromuscular coordination) and
           the continued development of skill and style.
V.      Intermediate Jazz Combinations
       A.  It is during this time that the dancer really gets to
           dance and use all the techniques he or she has been
           practicing.
       B.  The development of empathy for the accompaniment and the
           relationship to the choreography will be strongly
           emphasized.
       C.  Being able to adapt and pick up a style or movement
           combination is one of the major goals of participating
           in a jazz dance class.
       D.  The presentation of the choreography will be rehearsed
           to enable performance practice.
