Jazz is a fun dance style centred around top 40 music with a strong beat and lots of personality. A great jazz dancer owns their dancing with power, technique, confidence and style. Someone who is unpredictable with amazing technique and a whole bunch of fire!
Jazz dance grew out of the social dance forms that young people had used over many decades. A popular style, jazz can come in many different forms from the more theatrical Broadway styles to the funkier Commercial Jazz performance styles seen in music videos and on TV shows such as X Factor and The Masked Singer. We aim for our students to experience both types of jazz, but focus mainly on the latter.
Classes involve stretching, combinations of kicks, jumps and turns, and finish with a dance routine.
