Jazz dance class
Jazz dance class for kids
Dance to the beat of your dreams.
Jazz dance is an umbrella term encompassing several different styles of dance that became popular in the early 20th-century. Though jazz dance has mixed roots extending back through both African and European traditions, it’s a uniquely American creation, which developed simultaneously with jazz music in New Orleans. Unlike in other parts of the United States, slaves in New Orleans were allowed to retain and practice elements of their African heritage, and on Sundays, would gather in the Place des Nègres — later called Congo Square — to sing and dance.
Our Jazz dance programme combines strength, flexibility and Jazz dance techniques. This is a high energy class introduces the basic elements of Jazz dance techniques with exercises involving the floor, turns, leaps. Some identifying elements of jazz dance include isolation and grounded movement. Dancers keep a low centre of gravity, and often bend their knees. Jazz dance is the perfect dance genre for kids, its high energy class delivery gives your child an avenue to express themselves through the flow of movements.

Fosters superior working memory
Working memory is the ability to mentally hold, control and manipulate information in order to complete higher order tasks, such as reasoning and problem solving. Musicians are found to have superior working memory compared to non-musicians. Musicians are better able to sustain mental control during memory and recall tasks, most likely as a result of their long term musical training (Berti et al., 2006; Pallesen et al., 2010).
Cultivates better thinking skills
Sharpens student attentiveness
The ability to pay attention—visual focus, active listening and staying on task—is essential to school performance. It begins to develop early in life and is continuously refined. Early childhood training in instrumental music improves these attention abilities, while continued music education throughout adolescence reinforces and strengthens them (Neville et al., 2008). Attentiveness is an essential building block of engagement, a competency necessary for success in school and the workforce.
Equips students to be creative.
