If you are a fan of jazz musicians, you know that there have been some with remarkable talent. The music of Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis and John Coltrane all leave you with the desire to express your feelings through dance. While there are a myriad of dance styles out there to choose from, jazz dance is a combination of ballet and expressive movement, making it graceful yet full of expression—which means, of course, that jazz dancing is the perfect mate for impressive jazz music.
Jazz dancing can be tailored to meet whichever style of jazz music you prefer. For example, if you want something upbeat, such as “Take the A Train” by Duke Ellington, or something slow and thoughtful, like “It Never Entered My Mind” by Miles Davis, jazz dancing is diverse enough to cover both. Not only will jazz dancing satisfy your soul, but it also will increase your flexibility, since many of the moves involve stretching as part of the expressive movement. If you are a novice to jazz dancing and want to learn more complex moves that complement your favorite jazz artists, consider taking a jazz dance class.
