Jazz Dance Classes
at Alliance Francaise
We offer Ballet and Jazz dance courses for children aged 6 to 18 years old. The course will be divided in three sessions of 10 hours with a performance on stage at the end of the third session.
Exciting and fun, Jazz dance is full of energy, expressiveness and physical conditioning. The emphasis is on rhythm, style, coordination and self-confidence.
The first part of the class combines warm-up and stretching exercises, while the second part is a fun and challenging dance routine Street Jazz oriented. The emphasis is on rhythm, style, coordination and self-confidence.
Jazz Dance, a common form of dance used in musical theater and commercial and entertainment industries, has its roots in social dance and is heavily influenced by African-American traditions. It grew up alongside the American jazz music tradition. Later, it became entwined with tap, swing, and Broadway. As a result, the movements and styles associated with jazz dancing have been constantly changing over the decades. Nowadays it is more danced to hip-hop and other wild types of music.
The students will have the chance to experience performance opportunities on stage: a short choreography will be learned during the 2nd session and rehearsed during the 3rd session.
