“Dance: The Cutting Edge – Jazz Fusion: Level 4” is a continued building block on Jazz Level 3. Focus and multitasking are exercised through the use of advanced arm and head movements and refined body placement. Balance, strength, and flexibility are crucial at this level when learning moves such as Hinges that are taken to the floor, Layouts, and Needles. Proper technique and turnout are further developed, especially during A La Seconde Turns. Dancers enjoy new jumps, such as Frog Jumps and Cut Jumps. All told, there are more than 90 new skills presented in Level 4! Level 4 is very structured. Strength training and advanced use of music and rhythms are further stressed.
