As in Mommy and Me, the child will learn to march, jump, hop and skip as well as combine steps into fun and entertaining dance routines. This is a wonderful class for self expression and developing a sense of independence through music and movement.
Jazz is a fundamental dance form that compliments all other dance forms. Jazz classes are comprised of a warm-up, centre work and progressions including jumps and turns. Technique and style through choreography are emphasized. Students will learn jazz steps, progressive skills and jazz combinations and routines.
