Starz in Motion has a curriculum for every dance style and level to ensure that each class is geared toward mastering a skill set and create consistency regardless of which instructor your child has. 

This also helps to accurately track and measure students’ progress in an industry that is generally very subjective.  Below is a sampling of what skills your child (or you) could expect to learn in your Jazz classes. All of our styles have a structured curriculum meant to build on the skills of the prior level.
