Jazz


Jazz is a form of dance that showcases a dancer’s individual style and originality. It is ever changing and evolving and every teacher at RJ Performing Arts strives to keep abreast of the latest styles and trends. Every Jazz dancer interprets and executes moves and steps in their own way, and here at RJ Performing Arts we encourage students to be unique and individual in their work.

This type of dancing is energetic and fun, consisting of unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns. To excel in jazz, it is encouraged that students also study classical ballet as it encourages natural grace and balance.

Classes range from 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on your child’s age and ability. We strongly believe that although many young children want to study Jazz, they wait until they are over the age of 5, as many of the moves require a level of maturity, which is not yet developed before this age.

  • – Small classes so that your child receives the maximum attention
  • – Classes tailored to suit both the fun and serious dancer
  • – Care is always taken to ensure age appropriate music is used
