Let's Jazz!

Next week sees 3 weeks of adult Jazz classes at the Dance Centre in Llandrindod and we cannot wait to meet some new faces as we embark on another set of adult dance sessions!

There are so many wonderful dance fitness classes available in Llandrindod, and if you've been lucky enough to attend any of them you'll know they are delivered by some amazing instructors! We hope to be able to offer both fun and fitness in our adult dance sessions with a little bit of extra attention on both technique and style.

Adult Jazz Class

Join us for our last adult dance taster session this term.

This time it's all things JAZZ, or should it be ''all that Jazz"!

ADULT JAZZ.jpg

A dance style which is often hard to define (when it comes to dance, we sometimes think this is a good thing!) however it's hard to then explain exactly what it is.....

Well we're not here to define Jazz dance but we spoke to Jemma and asked her a few questions about what she's planning on doing for the workshop, to hopefully de-mystify it a bit for you!

"Jazz for me was very indulgent, always in class I would feel extremely free, in the sense that if I ever got a step or a flick, or an arm wrong (which was more often than not when I was a little younger) I could always 'style' it out, find my way back in and totally indulge myself to the music. It didn't matter if I was a beat behind, or my leg wasn't as high as everyone else, Jazz for me was about putting my own spin on it, enjoying the performance of it rather than worrying about getting it right. So I guess in terms of the workshop, expect kicks and flicks with a little footwork, we will be creating sharp lines with a bit of hip, not to fast, not to slow and MAYBE a prop but most of all we will be trying it all out together and having a good time! "
"For anyone coming to the session I hope they have fun, I hope they feel what I feel when I'm dancing, I want anyone there to appreciate the style of dance Jazz is but to totally run with it and have fun, music is key for me with Jazz so the pressure is on to pick some top tunes!"

Jemma Louise, Dance Practitioner.

 

Come along and try it out next week, experience Jazz dance in all its glory!

 

 

Half Term and Beyond!

We have the brilliant Cascade Dance Theatre with us at the Dance Centre for a week, beginning 6th November.

As a result, it means that some of our sessions and regular classes are taking a 2-week half term.

So we thought it only fair to make sure everyone knows when, where and whether their session is on, changed venue or having a week off....if you're with us so far, bravo!
