If you love music and moving, you will undoubtedly enjoy our adult jazz classes at Dancecorp Dance Studios in Brisbane.
Our jazz classes offer a great balance of both fun and creativity, while still teaching the importance of basic dance technique and skills.
While Dancecorp’s speciality is our Ballroom and Latin dance programs, we’ve launched these weekly Dance Active classes for adults – including jazz and ballet – so attendees could keep up their health and fitness while still social distancing.
Enjoy staying active and developing your jazz skills under the guidance of a dance instructor who has been a performer in commercial jazz for almost 15 years and taught for 10+ of those!
Below we cover everything you need to know about our jazz class.
Keep reading our blog to learn more about how our classes are structured and what experience (if any) is needed.
Benefits of Jazz Dance Class
- Fun way to exercise, move the body and get the heart pumping (anything is better than going for a run in our opinion!),
- Helps to boost flexibility, strength, and cardiac fitness,
- Also wonderful for mental health.
What to Expect from Our Adult Jazz Classes?
Blending dance with a group fitness class, all our Dance Active classes, including adult jazz classes, run for 60 minutes.
We allow for a maximum of eight people in our classes.
Jazz Class Rundown
- All classes begin with a dance inspired warm up and light stretch.
- We then teach skills such as kicks, jumps and turns that will later be included in a small section of choreography.
NB: Each week the choreography is revised before learning more so newcomers are welcome any time and will never feel like they’re behind.
We find in our Dance Active Jazz class that learning sequences of choreography puts all the elements of a great dance together, so you’ll get steps, tricks, musicality, performance and cardio in one workout!
Music | Adult Jazz Class
We use lots of different types of music to keep the energy high and classes enjoyable. We also take tempo into consideration and will opt for something slower or faster depending on the group’s ability and fitness level each week.
When are Adult Jazz classes held?
Our adult jazz class is held on Wednesday nights from 6.15-7.15pm.
We are eager to expand our Dance Active program, including additional Adult Jazz classes so tell your family or friends who you think might enjoy this high energy workout!
What to bring or wear?
- Clothing which is comfortable and loose
- Jazz shoes, ballet shoes, socks or bare feet
- Your own towel
- Water bottle to help you stay hydrated!
What Experience Is Required for Jazz Classes?
No skills are required as this is a class aimed at beginners. Our teacher can always add an extra challenge for participants who’ve danced before. For anyone who finds the class a bit much, we can also simplify the steps.
Though we welcome anyone over the age of 18, this class is most suitable for anyone from 18- late 40’s as it’s a higher intensity active class.
Anyone with mobility trouble or current injuries may find more benefit in another class, such as Stretch and Flexibility, first before jumping into a Jazz class.
