The term ‘jazz dance’ incorporates a broad range of dance styles that is constantly evolving in the modern world. With this in mind, our jazz dance classes aim to include many current trends, including street dance, hip hop and commercial dance, whilst still retaining traditional modern dance technique and structure. This is still essential for dancers of any style today.
These classes are fun-filled, energetic, lively and a great form of exercise, set to the most current chart music. Street/jazz dance really can improve fitness, enhance co-ordination and musicality, and is also a great social activity as often students work together to create their own pieces of choreography.
In our classes we teach a combination of jazz dance technique to ensure that the children are progressing within the styles but we also incorporate ‘free’ un-set exercises, routines and show dances to a range of different styles of music, whether that be pop or something more urban. Students are encouraged to improvise and contribute their own ideas so making them think and express themselves creatively.
Our minimum entry age for street/jazz dance is 3 years and all ages and levels are catered for, from our junior level, through Intermediate to Advanced 1 and 2.
Adult dancers are welcome and please do contact the Principal for details.
