Abstract [en]

This study discusses the need for strict classifications of genres within dance. I question what defines jazz dance and in turn, what separates it from modern/contemporary dance. To define my own role as a future teacher is the main purpose of this research, but also to question the need for differences in teacher´s education within these two dance styles. The study contains a summary of the typical qualities of movement and pedagogical methods as well as a historical overview of each genre. It also contains interviews with three dance teachers who teach both jazz dance and modern/contemporary dance. This was done in order to gain another perspective on the subject; which allows me to compare my own viewpoint not only to this but also to the literature read throughout my research. I sometimes find that the differences are made bigger than needed, especially during the education to become a teacher. I think that both genres would benefit from taking inspiration from each other’s ways of working.
