*This class is for all dance abilities*
We will focus on the fundamentals of dance incorporating Jazz technique. Learning how to apply that technique during a warm up, centre floor work, across the floor and with choreography. Students will also have a go and learn more advanced techniques like jumps, turns and leaps.
Jazz dance encompasses a wide variety of dance styles and can take many different forms using a broad range of music. Within a jazz class particular attention is paid to establishing solid dance technique at all levels of training.
Funk/Commercial Jazz which has been popular since the 1980s, combines aspects of hip hop and jazz and is often done to pop music. This style can be seen in the music videos of Janet Jackson and Kylie Minogue.
Musical Theatre Dance:
Musical theatre dance is a form of theatrical performance that combines song and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical – humor, pathos, love, anger, are communicated through words, music, movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole.
