Modern Jazz / Contemporary Modern Jazz

Varying rhythms and styles for fun musical interpretation.

Modern Jazz is fun. You will learn to develop many different movements reaching to a broad choice of varying rhythms and musical styles. Classes are structured to begin to prepare the physical strength and flexibility required to demonstrate emotion through interpretation of any musical genre.

One minute you may be dancing to the rhythm of a drum, the next to a funky jazz style. You may explore contrast between expansion and relaxation or learn to isolate in a slick stylish mood. Whatever the atmosphere of the class, it will be a wonderful opportunity to react and interact with other members and really dance to express your feelings.

The Modern Jazz syllabus has been reviewed by the board and as of 1st September 2019 Preparatory, Primary, Grade 1 and Grade 2 syllabus have now been replaced with the new Contemporary Modern Jazz syllabus. Grades 3 and upwards are in the process of review and an announcement to be made in January 2020. Current students of the Modern Jazz syllabus will continue to follow this until 31st August 2020 at which time it will be fully replaced by the new syllabus.
