Jazz dance encompasses many modern/contemporary dance styles, and has developed over the last century. Traditional jazz dance has it’s roots in African and European culture, and developed and changed with modern society. The growth of Classical Ballet led to jazz having a strong emphasis on technique, and it developing into a genre of it’s own in dance training. Jazz is constantly evolving and now incorporates commercial jazz, lyrical jazz, street jazz, musical theatre.
