The MHSB Jazz program was developed in 1995 and has proved tremendously popular. Children only need to be five years of age in order to start taking jazz. The pace is lively and the atmosphere is fun as children learn steps and combinations to recorded, current music.

Jazz classes help develop the ability to interpret contemporary rhythms and dance forms. Although not mandatory, students are encouraged to take ballet in addition to jazz.
