    This is a wonderful opportunity to Learn Zohar’s Jazz warm-up. Taught by Esther Selk, each week will focus on a section of the warm-up with time to ask questions, movement across the floor and time permitting a short combination.

    About Zohar’s Jazz Style - Developed by Ehud Krauss, Zohar’s style has its roots in Luigi Jazz Style. Zohar’s style is a lyrical jazz style that incorporates ballet and modern dance techniques.  To support our style, the warm-up is a comprehensive set of exercises developed over the years to prepare the dancer to utilize their entire body, be grounded, and express through movement.

    About Esther Selk - Esther loves to teach. An actress, dancer, educator, and natural storyteller! Esther seeks opportunities where she can encourage students of all ages and levels to take risks in a safe environment. She believes the most powerful tool for both teachers and students, of all ages and subjects, is a growth mindset. Esther brings this conviction to dance, believing that as we express ourselves through movement, and nurture our dance awareness, we need to feel comfortable with silliness and creativity. She has been a classroom teacher of primarily math and science for 20 years, and currently is the Drama Teacher at The Girls’ Middle School. She directs, acts, and choreographs for community theater productions, most recently the role of Ethel Toffelmeier in The Music Man. She is currently assistant director of The Drowsy Chaperone, and choreographer for the musical, [title of show]. Esther is a regular substitute teacher at Zohar.

    Class Descriptions
    Adult Jazz, Adult Modern, Adult Ballet, Adult Tap, Adult Musical Theater

    Jazz - Zohar's style is a lyrical contemporary style that combines classical jazz, ballet, modern (Graham), and Luigi's style. Both Ehud and Daynee do a choreographed warm-up, followed by movement across the floor, and a combination.

    Modern - Lisa's class begins with a floor barre that incorporates pilates-based exercises, followed by a thorough barre, movement across the floor, and a combination. Classes are accompanied by a pianist. 

    Ballet - Kristine teaches American ballet, which is straightforward with clean and bold lines. Marny's style is based on the Royal Ballet style, which is clean and romantic. Marny teaches with recorded music. Kristine typically has a pianist. It is recommended that you contribute separately to a pianist fee when taking Kristine's class.

    Contemporary - Adrienne specializes in modern and contemporary movement - emphasizing speed, efficiency, and an aggressive spatial dynamic that supports a more advanced artistic sensibility.  Contemporary fundamentals, including the use of weight and thoughtful attention to transitions result in a quality of movement that enhances all dance styles and disciplines, as well as cultivating versatility and joyful expression.
