Jazz for 5-6 year olds


Jazz dancing is entertaining to watch, fun and active to participate in. Jazz features a combination of unique moves, intricate footwork, leaps and quick turns.  Students work towards an optional jazz medal test or exam and an end-of-year performance.

Our age levels are designed to fit with NZ school year age groups. Students in Year 1 (turning 5 before Term 3 as a general rule) are in the Jazz Pre-Primary (Junior 1) level. This is a 30 minute class.
