Beginner Jazz


Come along and join this  vibrant jazz class that is perfect for both beginners and dancers with some experience.

Each week, the class will begin with an aerobic warm up to quicken the blood flow and then move onto a range of exercises that will enhance your jazz dance technique. You will improve your mobility, strength, stamina and flexibility and then learn a dance routine.

A great way to get ‘dance fit’ while having fun! Get those jazz hands ready.
