Modern Stage - Jazz
Jazz dance has taken many forms through the years and we will explore them all, whilst perfecting our technique and performance style.
Rhythmic and spontaneous. Tap allows you to be creative but first you must master the basics. These lessons are a step-by-step guide to the essential steps, sounds and moves of tap dance.
This class is perfect for children aged 21/2 to 4 who cannot stop moving when they hear music. They will develop their coordination, express themselves creatively, and build their concentration and focus – all providing a strong foundation for future dance.
This class will solely focus on fitness and stamina. We will improve strength and endurance to prepare the body for amateur or professional shows.
The only aim of this class is to increase flexibility. Suppleness is key to most dance styles and also reduces risk of injury as you progress to more advanced and complex techniques.
During these classes we will perform a wide range of dance styles, including lyrical and commercial, in a fast paced environment. This will prepare you for auditions and improve your memory for show choreography.

You will be so focused on learning our routines and having fun that you'll forget you're working out - and losing weight! Exercise isn't some you have to do, it's something you'll want to do.
