Contemporary - Jazz

Utilising pop music and great dance tunes, we use schedules to create classes that include; learning choreographies, creating dances together, free-movement (unstructured dancing), working on dance skills using props such as jumps and leaps, tippy toes and turns.

(Kids Plus:  is kids plus parent/caregiver/support worker, for our kids and teens with high need support.)

We know our participants enjoy having their support workers with them and our support works say this is a great way to get in exercise to their weeks as well! We have some guidelines about support worker participation, contact us to find our more.

SUPPORTParent and Support Worker Participation

In every class parent/support worker participation may depend on students’ goals, individual preferences or behaviours.

Kids and Teen classes – independency is encouraged where appropriate.

Kids Plus class – is kids plus parent/caregiver/support worker who stay and assist their child in the studio space while the class is on.

Adults class – a number of Support Workers help our adult participant to access the class, they too are invited to participate if the participant would like. It this class we avoid having parents/Support Workers watch as this causes some students to be uncomfortable.

We will provide a Support Worker In Studio Guide to each new support worker when they join us for the first time.

Our parents and carers have just as much fun as our participants and we appreciate their support. Many say it is a great way to get some exercise into their week!
