Jazz originated from vernacular African dance that was brought to America in slave ships and is closely also associated with the origin of Jazz music in Orlando, America. Jazz in the modern day and age is probably one of the best forms of dance to begin dance training in. It is widely diverse and can constitute bits and pieces of ballet, modern, hip hop, lyrical and Latin styles into an urban funky style. Every individual can bring his/her own personality to Jazz and helps evolve the style as have done many known choreographers over the years. A few examples are George Balanchine, who was originally a ballet pioneer but experimented with Jazz and contributed immensely to this dance form. Another example is Bob Fosse who was a theater choreographer who won 8 Tony awards and has also helped shape what we know as Broadway style Jazz today. Katherine Dunham, Jack Cole and Jerome Robbins are a few other remarkable contributors amongst many others who have shaped the Jazz form of dance.

Variations:

1. Street Jazz: Attitude and a street style dance performed on pop music is what is called street Jazz. Although it doesn’t have hip-hop vocabulary, it does constitute hip hop style dressing in loose clothes and Jazz sneakers, caps or other head wear etc.

2. Funk Jazz: This style of dance takes inference from Jazz Funk and Hip Hop but is different in that it is more powerful, dynamic, fast-paced and easier to relate to.  The aim of this form of dance is to keep the fun alive while allowing you to develop your own personal style.

3. Contemporary Jazz: Its an expressive and graceful yet dynamic dance which choreographed on the lyrics of the song. Lyrical Jazz includes Ballet and Jazz techniques and inferences from modern contemporary style.  The moves are natural and sometimes very technical.

4. Broadway Jazz: This genre of dance experiments with different qualities and levels of movement, which is a very advanced way of understanding dance. The popular techniques include Limon, Horton, Graham, Cunningham and Release techniques. It includes improvisation in which students have to interpret the music in their own way and give their own personal touch to Modern Jazz.  Students develop deeper knowledge of movement qualities including swinging, sustaining, percussive, suspending, vibrating, collapsing, releasing and rebounding. 

The Instructor – Chow En Lai:

Chow en Lai was the principal choreographer for the American Embassy School and was in the top 10 of India at DID Season 4 – where he passionately called the Flying Prince. He has choreographed for Sanjeeda Sheikh for an award show called Boroplus Zee Gold Awards 2014. He has been trained by Feroz Khan (Feroz ki Fauj) who was the lead choreographer for the movie Happy New Year. Chow took over as the head of Contemporary and Jazz divisions at Delhi Dance Academy in 2014 and has been conducting very well structured classes since.

Dance Away that Flab

Can't decide between the gym and dancing to lose that extra weight or to stay fit in general? Here's a list of dance forms taught at Delhi Dance Academy with the average calories burnt in 1 hour:

Zumba: 500-1000
Aerobics: 500-800
Jazz Contemporary: 400-600
Bharatnatyam: 400-600
Hip-Hop: 350-550
Belly dance: 250-450
Bollywood: 300
Salsa: 200-300

These numbers vary with your body weight and the amount of effort you put in.

How can I lose weight?
You lose weight when you consume or burn more calories than you take. Burning 3500 calories means you lose 1 lbs or 450 grams (almost half a Kilo) of weight.

In other words, if you cut 500 calories from your diet each day or burn 500 calories working out or dancing, you would lose 0.45 kgs in a week. :)

At Delhi Dance Academy we can also talk to you about your daily diet and recommend changes to help you lose weight.

Delhi Dance Academy has been featured on 24 x 7 News Channel as one of Delhi's best dance institutes. We have made recent appearances on TV Channels like BBC, Aajtak, E TV, NHK World, MTv and NDTV Goodtimes. We are among the top 50 activities to do while in Delhi by TripAdvisor with excellent reviews.
