Contemporary: Kobi's Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including Modern, Jazz, Lyrical, and classical Ballet. Dancers are inspired to connect the mind and the body through fluid or sharp dance movements. This style allows the dancers more versatility and freedom for improvisation. Attention and focus is given to musicality and emotions, allowing the dancers to connect to the song and with each other. You'll find this style unique and welcoming to dancers with various technique levels and to anyone with the desire to explore and have fun. JazzFunk: This is a very energetic and Dynamic dance style where students incorporate both their jazz technique and hip hop skills. This style is very dominant on MTV and music videos and is a style in which precision and musicality are vital. In this style the performance skills and showing personality are really important. Kobi's JazzFunk is very unique, filled with a lot of passion, sharp movement and character .
