Modern Jazz

The contemporary and modern approach makes the Modern Jazz work fun and a real favourite.

In this style the students learn to develop many different movements reaching to a broad choice of varying rhythms and musical styles. Classes are structured to begin to prepare the physical strength and flexibility required to demonstrate emotion through interpretation of any musical piece.

From the beginning students learn to be creative with movement and creating shapes. They explore the contrast between expansion and relaxation or learn to isolate in a slick stylish mood. Whatever the atmosphere of the class, it is a great opportunity to react and interact with other members of the class and really dance to express feeling and emotion through music and movement.

Children begin learning Modern Jazz from 6 years of age.
