Jazz at GDA
Jazz is a fascinating genre with a lot of history, and within the bracket of 'Jazz' are many styles. We think it is important for the dancer to investigate as many as possible, along with the history of this fabulous art form.
Jazz teaches many different skills such as technique, posture, expression, energy, power, control, to travel the stage, to perform with facials, and capture their audience with all round entertainment, just to name a few!
Which class should I choose?
Minii Movers - For children aged 3-6 yrs
Junior Jazz - For children aged 6-11 years, or until they are invited to move up to Senior class
Senior Jazz - For children aged 11+
Classes are not just based on age, but also previous dance experience and individual ability.
For new students - If you are unsure which class to select then please contact us for info, where you can be temporarily placed for assessment.
For existing students - Please select the class you were most recently in unless you have been invited to move to a different class by Miss Wendy.
What do I wear?
If you are new to class, then please arrive dressed in clothing that you can move freely in, e.g., Leggings and a T-shirt. Bare feet are acceptable, hair must be secured away from the face. Please also bring water.
Uniform must be worn in classes (with the exception of Adult Classes) after your trial ends, which can be purchased from our online store or our on-site dance shop. This consists of Leotard, tights/leggings, and jazz shoes.
