Jazz Dance classes begin from the age of five with boys and girls both being encouraged to start. Jazz Dance can be modern but also the school experiments with different styles of Jazz from different time periods, for example previously the students have been involved in a 1920s Charleston. The Jazz Dance classes are popular with all ages and accommodate beginners through to advanced.
The health and physical fitness benefits of jazz dance include increased strength, flexibility, coordination, and endurance. The athletic, full-bodied nature of jazz dance develops arm strength from floor work, leg strength from jumps, and core strength from coordinating the limbs.
The Jazz Dance classes are 45 minutes in length and run in 8-week blocks.
Infant Jazz Dance (ages 5 to 7) – Tuesdays 3:45 – 4:30 pm
Junior Jazz Dance (ages 8+) – Tuesdays 4:30 – 5:15 pm
Price for the 8-week block is £56 (£7.00 per class)
About The Dance Teacher – Ms Andie Nydza
Principle A.B.B.O. (adv.) A.I.S.T.D, M.B.A.L (reg teacher)
My Passion for dance began at a young age and has continued through both my professional dance career and my 34 years as a very successful dance teacher. I danced professionally for over 12 years and my diverse career included work on the stage, television and international tours. This experience has been invaluable in enabling me to prepare my older students both technically as high calibre dancers and for the realities of life as a professional dancer.
I am very passionate about all styles of dance but my particular expertise is in Ballet, Tap and Jazz. I teach, choreograph and perform all three to a high standard. I have an impressive track record of training and motivating dancers, aged 2 to adults and this is backed up by the success my students achieve in exams and in the number of students who continue onto full time ballet/performing arts establishments, (e.g. The Royal Ballet Upper School, Ballet Rambert, Central Ballet School and Laine Theatre Arts) or into professional dance companies. Whether a student wishes to dance as a career or as a leisure interest I make sure they have every opportunity to reach their full potential and to gain a love of dance. I take great pride in offering students a professional and friendly atmosphere in which to dance.
