bex...did you even look at the link? My post is an information post not a question. And everyone doesn't know ....especially since this is a Beginner board and they want to know because they are interested in starting.

Scraby,it can be, there are certainly contemporary jazz styles out there and definately with balletic technique and influences. Some people will call it lyrical jazz. The color of the shoe isn't really important, most dancers and schools do wear black, but it really bears no relevence to the art form. You could wear tan, sneakers, character shoes, bare feet....depends on the style.

Well see, that's the thing, most people DO think that's what jazz is, "like hip hop but more formal". Jazz is a full rich dance art form with a full history. I think definately through 'evolution' of dance and time that Hip Hop given it's cultural and musical connections could be considered a type of modern day jazz dance, but if you're really interested in what is jazz dance then keep researching and asking questions. There's more to it than what we see on popular TV.

Thank you so much! I do Irish and have been injured so my PE teacher is making me write reports. I have throughly exhausted the subject of Irish dance so now I have decided to introduce her to other forms of dance. This post was awesome! Karma to you.

I'm not a jazz dancer now.. i was a couple years ago.. it seems like a mix of hip hop and ballet/lyrical.

OK, I don't mean to be rude, but it seems as though some of you are not reading the post...just the header/question. If you click on the link in the first post you will see an article on jazz and more links. Please read the thread you are replying to. cheers
