Tweens & Teens Beginner Modern & Jazz Combo Class
Teens & Tweens
Winter 2020 Session has been cancelled.
Mondays, 6:15 – 7:15 p.m.
MODERN: We know how hard it can be to find Modern Dance classes for children. It is part of our mission and passion to offer Modern Dance for all ages. In Modern, we teach your child the joy of movement: in its creativity, freedom, and power to express! Modern is ML&Co.’s favorite technique, because it’s more about innovation and individuality, and less about traditional techniques and movements. Think: barefoot, creative movement, expressivity, and moving through space with different kinds of energy and flow. Dancers will also learn how to utilize the floor. This class is terrific for dancers who are interested in dancing, but not wanting to join in on a classical ballet class!
JAZZ: While it started out with top hats, kicks, Fred Astaire, and Gene Kelly, today, Jazz also encompasses popular dance (signature 80s dance moves were taken from Jazz legend Bob Fosse, known for Chicago and Pippin). Jazz is a fun technique that is about style, lines, kicks, jumps, turns, and shapes. When taught to children, MamLuft&Co. Dance teaches a combination of classic Broadway jazz and today’s kids bop. We teach a technique that is age-appropriate and, as with all of our classes, work to be gender-inclusive.
