Commercial Jazz

Commercial Jazz

What is it? A current style of modern dance. Commercial Jazz is known to be a highly choreographed dance form. It features a mixture of sharp and fluid movements, popping & locking and animated expression similar to dances seen on commercial video clips. This stylized combination of street funk, hip hop and pop is similar to styles seen in music videos for Beonce, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and Janet Jackson. Sean Cheesman, a well known choreographer says... “It’s a mixture of hip hop, street, jazz and the latest dance steps, choreographed to pop songs,

Where did it come from? More the kind of style seen on Tv or Music videos. When MTV debuted in 1981, it created a surge in the production of music videos. This style was developed to fill the need for backup dancers in these videos.
