Jazz and Musical Theatre

Description

Jazz

Jazz Dance is used as an umbrella term to encompass many different branches including technical jazz, commercial jazz, Broadway/musical theatre jazz and even some social dances such as the Charleston.  It is fast, fun and incorporates many of the same elements as ballet and contemporary, including leaps and pirouettes.

Jazz Dance became popular in early twentieth century America, however there are traces of this style in African rituals and celebratory dances from around the seventeenth century.

Jazz Dance at Panthera Dance Company is Non-Syllabus meaning there are no exams to be taken and the classes focus on technique through choreography and exercises.

 

Musical Theatre

Panthera Dance Company’s Musical Theatre classes will use music from different Musicals every week, teaching either original choreography from the show or choreography in the style of the show!

Musical Theatre incorporates lots of different styles of dance including Jazz, Contemporary, Street Dance and Commercial.

These classes will be a fun filled class and hopefully give you an insight into dancing in a West End Show, focusing on choreography and performance.
