Modern Jazz

Modern Jazz is the ‘icing on the cake subject’ and all our youngsters look forward to joining these classes as soon as they can. Classes are lively, noisy, energetic and full of fun, everyone wants to do them!

Children often start to study Modern Jazz when they are a little older and their physical structure is stronger. This is a strong dance style. The original IDTA syllabus having been developed by the dancers of the original West Side Story inspired by the Jerome Robbins choreography. Much development has taken place over the years and the latest major syllabus was created by the choreographer and IDTA Examiner Phil Winston. The subject opens up many new opportunities for dancers and combines some of the skills from the ballet and tap syllabi.
