Frank Hatchett draws from his experience teaching, choreographing and performing to present the hottest style of jazz dance - VOP. VOP is a term Hatchett coined early in his teaching career to express how to accent a step or stylize a movement. The book is divided into four levels of difficulty, allowing readers to easily progress from beginner to advanced. Hatchett hints and 242 movement photos accompany each level and address proper alignment, technique and common areas for improvement. dancers can also add their own artistic interpretations to VOP, creating jazz movements and combinations that make the style come alive.
