During the roaring 20's, the rise of jazz music encouraged dance to become more social and reflective of Jazz music. Jazz dance is a style of dance that is seen in many Broadway type shows such as "Cats". Jazz dancing is entertaining to watch, fun and active to participate in. Jazz features a combination of unique moves, intricate footwork, leaps and quick turns. Jazz enhances a dancers grace and balance. Key characteristics include isolations and rhythmic layering. Jazz dances will often have a playful attitude and bold characters.
