Jazz dance classes...
Our jazz classes are grouped by age/ability. Every class begins with a fast and fun warm-up to develop rhythm, coordination and body awareness, and to introduce basic dance steps. The warm-up is followed by a section of stretching exercises to improve flexibility and posture.
Time is spent learning and improving dance steps and new moves, including elements from the ISTD Modern Grades syllabus and popular new styles such as street dance and hip-hop.
