An introduction to the fun and energy of jazz dance technique, in a class with other beginner adults, set to an pumping soundtrack that includes the latest pop music, as well as some special gems you might not have heard.
Have you ever gone to an adult jazz class, but found that your feet got all tangled up and you can’t keep up? Or that most of the people there are barely out of their teens?
Neither of these things will happen in our 12 week Introduction to Jazz course. Firstly, we really do have people in their 30s and beyond in our jazz classes. And we’ll start from the basics, and support you as you start to learn what jazz dance is, the basic movements and footwork patterns, develop your sense of rhythm and coordination, discover how to move with style, experience the different styles within jazz, and train your body in the way a jazz dancer moves.
It’s a way for adults to learn jazz dance that won’t make you feel self-conscious about your age, size, or lack of experience. Everyone else in the class will be in the same position as you, learning jazz dance for the first time.
Your teacher will be a specialist in teaching jazz dance to adults, which means you won’t be asked to do something that is harmful to your body, you won’t be expected to wear revealing clothes that make you uncomfortable, and you’ll be treated like an individual who has their own dreams, goals and aspirations.
At the end of the 12 weeks, you’ll never have to be afraid of being the only novice in a jazz dance class again. You’ll be ready to step into one of our Level 2 jazz classes, or you could attend an ongoing beginner jazz class anywhere and hold your own.
