    Argentine Tango (All Levels)

    They say it takes two to tango, but baby steps -- let's start with YOU. You are but one, but by the time you take this class you'll be moving so fast onlookers will think there are four of you. So become the Jamie Madrox of dance and step into the groove today. Argentine Tango is known to be a dance of passion and connection. A highly individualistic and improvisational dance, with endless possibilities in its intricately woven steps, this dance provides freedom for musical expression via movement through time. A true social dance, based on the art of leading and following, tango allows the opportunity for layers of connection, creating a lovely present moment Zen between dancers. Some say that tango should have a warning label for how highly addictive it is. Who are these "they's" and "some's?" They're spot-on, if you ask us.

    Jazz Dance

    What does "jazz" mean to you? If you said "stuffy elevator music," get OUT! Jazz is actually more of a term for knowing all of the rules so that you can break them. Jazz dance (commonly simply referred to in the dance world as "jazz") is a style of dance that combines ballet, tap, African, modern dance, and hip-hop, and can be performed to almost any type of music. The versatility of this dance style allows room for creativity and personal expression. In a jazz dance class at Dance With Joy Studios, you'll learn basic jazz technique, and develop fun, feel-good choreography to apply to a wide variety of music! So you'll learn all of the styles, and apply them when and wherever you want. But please, no dancing in the elevator -- it's already pretty cramped.
