JAZZ – Jazzaddict Syllabus

Queenstown School of Dance has been teaching the Jazzaddict syllabus for 11 years. This syllabus contains classical technique, technical warm-ups, travelling progressions and routines that involve various steps, turns, jumps and floorwork. We train students in lyrical dance, musical theatre, impromptu and student choreography. Setting a solid base for those students wishing to continue dance on as a career. As this is a technical class it is compulsory for all school year 3-8s to also enrol in a Conditioning class. Jazz classes are only 45mins as most of the core technical work will be taught in the conditioning class. In term 3 the classes will extend to 90mins as students prepare for their exams.

 

CONDITIONING CLASS 

Junior 3 (A) – 2019

Technique is the basis of all fundamentals of dance, from holding your body correctly while performing, to executing skills properly in a routine. Strong technique extends across all areas of dance. This class is made up of exercises using props to help dancers improve their turn out, body alignment, leg and foot strength and extension, upper body stability, turn and leap skills. There are two trained teachers in every class. This is a compulsory class for all Jazz Dancers and recommended to all serious ballet and contemporary dancers. Conditioning classes run term 1, 2 and
