Jazz Delane is an incredibly talented performer and choreographer, and his experience as a teacher has encompassed over twenty years. His style is challenging and unique because it combines strong ballet “barre,” modern lines, West African and jazz movements. Delane is able to adapt and choreograph to any variety of rhythms or musical patterns, from classical jazz to hip-hop, from tango to Arabic melodies, without losing his powerful identity. Delane’s jazz classes represent an irreplaceable opportunity for study and discovery. With a credo of “commitment is success,” Delane taught jazz at UCLA and currently teaches at the Hollywood Dance Center and Dance Arts Academy. He has previously taught at other prestigious institutions and studios, such as The California Institute of the Arts in Valencia and the Pasadena Dance Center. He has been invited by Westside Ballet and San Pedro Ballet to teach master jazz classes.
