A cabaret-style dance move, popularized by the musical "Fosse". Now used, usually ironically, to express excitement, glee, razzle dazzle, etc.

The move is performed by tilting the head slightly, shimmering the hands with fingers splayed either side of the face and crying "Jazz hands!" with an enthusiastic smile. Think Jack from Will and Grace.

Also *JAZZ HANDS!!!* used as an expressive punctuation on blogs and bulletin boards.

A dance move, charecterized by middle aged gay men yelling at you in sequence or acompanied by upbeat show music. To execute this move, you must extend all muscles of the hand until your hand is red, shaking and it hurts. Jazz hands are highly annoying, but effective to impress judges at dance competition.
