What’s it all about?
Jazz dance refers to dance styles that originated from African tribal dances. It has been reshaped and developed over time by changes in music and by the influences of time.
Broadway jazz has a distinctive bold and showy style, fit for the musical fanatic in each of us. It typically uses music of Broadway origins and the choreography focuses on storytelling and characterisation.
What will we cover?
Suitable for beginner dancers, this class will explore the genre of Broadway jazz with basic warm-up, introduction of simple jazz techniques that will lead up to a choreography for a classic song from the 70’s.
All throughout we will be learning to unleash the theatrical monster and release the pent-up creativity inside of us.
