Jazz

MODERN JAZZ

Jazz is a snappy modern style & fun for dance enthusiasts of all ages (starting 5+ years).

We are a registered dance studio of Jazz Addict, which is an exciting & stimulating syllabus. 

Classical technique, jazz arms, floorwork, isolations, travelling progressions, turns and leaps form the foundation exercises of our jazz classes. We learn dances in styles of commercial jazz, musical theatre & lyrical.

Students are supported and encouraged to choreograph their own work from a young age.  This starts with improvisation & free dance, and later student choreography opportunities.

Our students work towards assessments/exams mid year & then have the opportuntity to dance in 2 stage performances each year.
