Ages 5 and up

Jazz students are trained through the Associated Dance Arts for Professional Teachers (A.D.A.P.T.), which progresses through a series of graded levels. Each level focuses on a specific set of techniques appropriate to the developing dancer. A high energy dance form incorporating jumps, turns, flexibility and style. Jazz dancing encourages development in co-ordination, strength and performance. Dancers will prepare a routine for Rhythm Dance Center's annual year end recital.

Students progress through the graded levels through an examination process. The examination process is optional for recreational dancers and mandatory for competitive dancers. The examination process is a positive learning experience that allows dancers to gain further feedback on their dance technique. Each year students who have successfully mastered the level's required material will be offered an invitation to participate in the examination session. It is not uncommon for levels to take more than one year in order to master all of the required elements. Jazz students who successfully complete their examination will receive a certificate of achievement. Students who achieve the highest mark of Highly Commended Plus on their jazz examination will also receive a medal with their name, level and date of examination.
