Further development of jazz dance technique building on fundamental concepts and vocabulary introduced in Jazz Dance I. Will include increased movement capabilities, rhythmic accuracy, alignment, and performance. A small fee may be required for dance concert attendance.

Jazz dance technique provides the student with a disciplined approach to learning dance skills emphasizing correct alignment, efficiency of movement, spatial awareness, musicality, and performance qualities. The study of Jazz Dance also allows students to understand and develop an appreciation of dance as an art form. Many students arrive at NC State University already accomplished in Jazz Dance I technique and desire to further their study of Jazz Dance. Jazz Dance II allows for this development.
