Next Step

Jazz Unlimited is thrilled for another exciting season of “THE NEXT STEP” program. The Next Step Program is a series of rehearsals emphasizing technique and choreography and was developed to supplement weekly scheduled dance classes. This program is designed for students who show promise and who are interested in additional performance opportunities. The dancers will be featured in our annual recitals.
