We have Jazz classes for ages 4yrs - Adult.
Jazz - Include a range of styles and music, such as, Musical Theatre, Commercial Jazz, Song and Dance, Pop, RNB and Funk. Introducing these styles will make for an all rounded dancer/performer. All Jazz classes help students with coordination, strength and isolation of the body.
Junior Classes - Students learn the foundation of movement through games, exercise and choreography. Children learn the beginnings of advanced skills such as, Direction, Coordination steps, Travelling movements, Body awareness, and performing as a group. This knowledge of dance is cemented by our exam syllabus (SFD) which is not compulsory, but helps the child to retain 99% of skills learnt each year.
Primary Classes - Following on from Junior classes, students progress as skills become more intricate. They learn and understand musicality, strength, flexibility, rhythm, and their repertoire of steps grows to help them grasp and achieve in their dance classes.
Senior Classes - The basis of choreography is more focussed in class as steps become intricate and more challenging. With a strong background and the repetition of skills learnt from previous levels, students have the opportunity to perform to fine tune there dancing style.
Adult Classes - Jazz Contemporary uses many styles of music, however the Jazz component is used to allow the student to grasp the style more effectively. This class helps the dancer to understand posture and alignment. This class is Open to all abilities.
With the Southern Federation of Dance syllabus students learn about the style in a very comprehensive manner. With exams, master classes, competitions and workshops to enhance their training, the classes are fun and perfect for those wanting to go further with their dancing.
