The Class

Jazz Class

This class has now finished for the summer break and back in September. This will be an all things jazz class, it will be a structured one and a half hour class with a warm up, some technique, travelling and of course a routine all done to some great jazz/fusion music. This class will cover many styles of jazz which will be reflected in the routines at the end of class, Show Jazz, Contemporary Jazz, Traditional jazz, Commercial jazz and more. It will be fun but a good work out, so be ready to work! Some dance experience would be good but if you love to dance and have a passion for dance and no experience then please come along to try it out. 7.30 till 9.00 pm. £10 drop in paid weekly to reception on arrival.
