Jazz is a form of dance that showcases a dancer's individual style and originality. Every dancer interprets and executes moves and steps in their own way. This type of dancing is energetic and fun. Consisting of unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns.  Jazz dance itself is a combination of classical ballet moves mixed with steps from American popular culture, including African and Celtic dance influences. Classes include a warm-up, barre exercises, stretching exercises, steps, routines, a dance and finally a cool down. We use modern music that the students relate to and enjoy. Competitions for individuals are available. Ribbons are awarded for achievement throughout the year. Jazz classes start from the age of 5 years to adult.
