Theatre Jazz, also commonly called Broadway Jazz, is a jazz dance class with a focus on musical theatre. Songs used in our Theatre Jazz classes come from well-known musical theatre shows, with original choreography influenced by the themes and story of that show.
These classes tend to have a strong focus on performance and delivery. It’s a must for amateur performers and musical theatre lovers who have to just get up and dance to their favourite show tunes.
Singing is always optional, but never frowned upon!
