Kids Jazz & Lyrical Dance Classes (3-18)


Jazz

Jazz is a diverse, powerful and dynamic dance style. It improves overall coordination and flexibility in a fast paced, challenging and fun environment. Students will focus on isolations, stylization, jumping, turning, progressions and current choreography.

The General Training Program (G) will include a year-end performance.

The Intensive Training Program (ITP) Dancers must be recommended for this program by one of the Directors. ITP class codes are now based on levels. This should make it easier when competition season comes for knowing your dancers codes. Here are a few special notes to refer to regarding our new level system. ITP performance classes may include festivals/competitions and will include year-end performances.

Level 1 – Current RAD Grade 1 /JJ1 students. *We ask that to be in Level 1 dancers take both Level 1 ballet classes and Level 1 jazz if desired. If you would prefer just to do one ballet class then we recommend JB1 and JJ1 jazz.

Level 2 – Current RAD Grade 2/JJ2 students.

Level 3 – Current RAD Grade 3/JJ3 students.

Level 4 – Current RAD Inter-Foundation/IJ1 students. 

Level 5 – Current RAD Intermediate / IJ3 students. 

Level 6 – Current RAD Advanced 1 / SJ1 students. 

* If you are unsure what level to register please speak with one of the directors.

LYRICAL

This style of dance explores self-expression using a combination of jazz, ballet and modern technique. Danced to soft free flowing music, classes will focus on smooth moving techniques that emphasize the lyrics. These classes may involve festival, competition and year-end performance. *Please Note  – All dancers (G or ITP) must be enrolled in at least one ballet class per week to participate in any lyrical class.
