Jazz dance course introduces learners to traditional & contemporary styles. Participants will learn exercises to improve their dance technique & experience, working to a variety of jazz styles. Students will also learn & perform a short dance sequence created in collaboration with the tutor.
Participants will learn the technical vocabulary used in this dance style, and will also develop musicality, develop rhythm and coordination, spatial awareness by following different step patterns, dance sequences and group formations set to music with different time signatures and speed.
References to the historical development of the style and its connection with other dance genres from different parts of the world, will be shared with you to support your understanding of the style and technique.
None, but any movement or dance experience would be beneficial.
