Junior Jazz classes are a great way for your dancer to develop their movement skills and have fun dancing to upbeat, popular music.
These classes begin with a cardio and strengthening warm up to pop music, often with some games to get the children really moving! We then build on basic jazz technique such as kicks, turns, jumps and leaps. These are performed in sequences moving across the room and we begin to develop strong lines, good posture and awareness of performance skills. We end the class by learning a dance routine – this gives the children a chance learn about stage craft, build confidence by performing to peers and also the option to add some improvisation.
Your child will develop confidence and body awareness as well as building on strength, flexibility and stamina. We encourage teamwork in some sequences so they have a chance to make new friends too.
As with all classes a wide range of props such as rainbow streamers, pom-poms and instruments are used to enhance the learning experience. Your dancer will be so excited to show you their new skills and dance routine at home!
