Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to create knowledge about which jazz dance styles and jazz dance components are present, and how they emerged at ten to twelve year old children’s jazz dance classes in Stockholm. Empirical material was collected through semi-structured observations during three jazz dance classes at three different dance schools. The results revealed that both jazz dance components (musicality, dynamics, isolations, expression and improvisation) and jazz dance styles varied at the three jazz dance classes. The results revealed as well that styles of the observed dance lessons were fusions of teachers’ individual styles combined with recognized jazz dance styles; show-, lyrical-, broadway- and authentic jazz.
