Theatre Jazz, also commonly called Broadway Jazz, is essentially a jazz class with a focus on musical theatre. Songs used in the class will be from well-known musical theatre shows, and any choreography taught will be influenced by the themes and story of that show.
These classes tend to have a strong focus on performance and delivery. A must for musical theatre lovers that have to just get up and dance to their favourite show tunes.
