Jazz dance technique was designed to rebel against traditional ballet. Jazz dance is energetic and fun, showcasing exaggerated movements, fancy footwork, big leaps and fast turns with an attitude that the dancer conveys to the audience. This style of dance is faster than ballet, which most students find more enjoyable and easier to follow. However, to excel in jazz, dancers need a strong background in ballet. Dancers focus on jazz techniques, isolations and lyrical movements throughout their training.
KaliAndrews Dance Company offers Jazz dance classes for all ages. In our syllabus-based jazz classes, students will study exam preparation work in Term 1 and move into preparation for our recital performance throughout Term 2.
Recommended additional classes: Jumps & Turns, Ballet or Technique
Jumps & Turns
Jumps & Turns classes are designed to enhance jazz techniques with a primary focus on mastering jumping and turning elements without choreography. Dancers will build muscle memory and fine tune their skills for easy execution with these skills.
This is not a performance-based class; therefore, the participants have the opportunity to continue their training for the full duration of each term.
Recommended additional classes: Ballet, Jazz
