Welcome

 

To help you understand a little bit about jazz dance and music we offer some information and activities.

Here you will find:

  • A short background and history of DJD
  • A short history of Jazz dance
  • Lists of recommended reading for both you and your students, as well as web sites that we have found useful
  • A jazz era list with examples of musicians and performing artists to research and/or listen to

Some of the suggested student activities require accompanying jazz music.  We have made a couple of suggestions regarding pieces to use, but if you have favourite pieces of jazz music that you feel are appropriate go ahead and use them!
