Jazz & Tap Classes
Our Jazz Tap classes follow the Australian Teachers of Dance (ATOD) and we include our own curriculum to provide a variety of music, both classical and modern, along with choreography to help your child have the technique and ability to be a rounded dancer and perform.
Please note the ages for classes are just a guideline and it is important children have the skills and confidence before moving up a class.
This is a super fun, energetic class that is split into 2 genres – Jazz and Tap. If your child loves to dance, feel the beat of the music and loves a challenge – then this is the class for them! The class is suitable for children aged 5-7years old and is also a great class for boys who love to dance.
Your child will be introduced to Jazz and Tap technique, they will learn how to count their steps, listen to the timing of music, link steps together and learn choreography. The class is fast paced with a lot of learning happening and children will gain skills in 2 great dance styles.
Parents leave these classes although we do offer flexibility for new dancers / families.
*Little Groovers runs Saturday at 10:15am at Karrinyup and 10:55am at Malaga
Junior Jazz / Tap Combo
This is a high energy, fun class that is split into 2 genres – Jazz and Tap. Your child will learn the varying styles of Jazz dance including steps such as kicks, turns, leaps, combinations and travelling steps. In the second component of the class they will learn tap dance, a fun but equally challenging genre which involves learning about timing, rhythm, shuffles, flaps, musicality and also choreography.
It is great if your child is also taking Ballet or has danced before as Ballet is the foundation of all dance styles and you will find they can pick up the steps easier, although newbies are most welcome.
It is suitable for children aged 7 years upwards and this is also a great class for boys.
Parents do not stay for these classes, although they are invited to our termly parent viewing week.
