What a jazz dance class has to offer

In a jazz dance lesson, your child will learn how to dance to jazz music. They may learn both modern and classical forms of jazz dance, including tap dance, jitterbug, lindy hop, and swing. And they’ll be taught and supervised by a trained dance instructor, who will teach them many moves, jumps, turns, and combinations. These may include:

  • axel turn,
  • barrel jump,
  • catwalk,
  • hip roll,
  • limbo,
  • funk,
  • shimmy,

and

  • shiver.

Your child is sure to have a great time in a jazz dance program. They’ll learn a variety of dance styles and moves, through instruction, practice, and rehearsal. They’ll also improve their skill level and coordination, which can boost self-confidence. And they may have the opportunity to show off their skills in front of family and friends.

Different kinds of jazz dance lessons

Jazz dance classes are a great way to spend a summer or winter. They’re also a great afterschool, evening, and weekend option for many families.

Luckily, in Canada, there are many jazz dance  classes and lessons for kids. This includes dance lessons in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver.

Some of the classes are offered in a specialized jazz dance program. The majority, though, are offered in a dance program, school, or camp, which offers jazz dance along with other options, such as ballroom, ballet, hip hop, and breakdancing. There also some traditional camps which offer jazz dance along with other activities for kids, such as soccer, tennis, swimming, and sailing.

    They can read, but when it comes to functional literacy—expressing ideas, crafting arguments—some feel that students could, and should, be doing better. [Read more]
