Jazz dance is a form of personal expression created and sustained through improvisation. It has a heritage that can be traced to its African origin through a period of American vernacular dance to today's theatrical dancing. It has certain defining characteristics, including improvisation, isolation, a centrifugal explosion of energy that radiates outward from the hips, and a propulsive rhythm that gives a swinging quality to the movement
