Modern Jazz

Modern Theatre Jazz is a rhythmic dance style that originated in America before travelling to the rest of the world. It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps and turns, which all require strength and flexibility. This is a highly energetic dance style and one of the most enjoyable for students of all ages.

NPA follows the ISTD syllabus for modern jazz, with students encouraged to sit the exams, which we work towards throughout the year. Term 4 is dedicated to learning the class dances for our end-of-year production.
