Jazz is a fun and energetic dance style consisting of unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns. To excel in jazz, students benefit by having a strong background in ballet, as it encourages strength, co-ordination and balance. We follow the ADA (Australasian Dance Association) syllabus for Jazz. This organization recognizes the need for teachers to be more widely trained in areas peripheral to actual dance technique. The syllabus requirements for teaching qualification examinations has been expanded to include the demonstration of actual teaching ability, a knowledge of music in relation to dance, the study of Anatomy, Physiology and Psychology, First Aid and Safe Dance Practices.
