Jazz Funk & Contemporary (Age 8+)

WHY CHOOSE RHF 

⇒Instructors, not just Choreographers
The student’s growth is the instructor’s #1 priority. At RHF we curate a roster of instructors who are dedicated to that. Our instructors are not just good choreographers but they are also brilliant teachers. Each class is planned and followed strictly for optimum growth.

⇒Age-Appropriateness
At RHF we understand that Children are healthiest when they are allowed to just be children. We restrain from using mature music with questionable lyrics. Our syllabus, class flow etc is planned according to the age of the students.

⇒Class Size
Having crowded dance classes is less than ideal for several reasons. At RHF we make sure that the students have enough space to move without bumping into each other and the instructor can provide personal care and attention to each student.

⇒Room For Growth
At RHF we provide the scope for growth and promotion to advance levels. It is important to challenge the students constantly and help them reach the next level.

 

 

Jazz Funk (Age 8+)

Jazz Funk is an undeniably powerful way of self-expression and helps let go of inhibitions. Jazz Funk is a dynamic blend of Hip Hop and Jazz technique. Choreographies have often highly syncopated musicality and intricate movement.

Benefits of Jazz Dance Classes for Children

Improved Coordination
As your child progresses through their first round of jazz and dance classes, you might notice that they have an improved sense of coordination. Routines will challenge their upper and lower body to parallel and contrast each other in different ways, which might be a bit awkward for them at first, but will ultimately result in better coordination—an improvement that can be reflected in their everyday life.

Incredible Cardio Workout
Jazz dance moves are often fast-paced, and require significant physical efforts from students. This genre is aerobic in nature, which means that it’ll help your child develop stronger bones muscles, and increase their physical stamina. During classes, they’ll be on the floor for extended periods of time, so you can count on them getting their heart rate up!

Improved Concentration & Mood
By setting aside time each week to focus on dance, your child will have access to an outlet to relieve their daily stresses. For the hour they’re in class, they’ll be completely immersed in the music and moves, leaving no time to worry about school, family, or anything else that may be weighing on their mind. This short break in their week can allow them the space they need to breath and recollect themselves, and will improve their level of concentration and mood for the rest of the week.

Express Emotions
Some children act out in unfavourable ways as a result of pent up emotions that they don’t know how to handle. Enrolling your child in jazz dance classes will give them the opportunity to express themselves in a way that’s beneficial to their physical and mental health. They can channel their emotions into their routines, and turn feelings of angst, anger, and sadness into beautiful dance moves.

 
Contemporary (Age 8+)

Contemporary dance is a popular form of dance which developed during the 20th century and has since grown to become one of the most dominant performance genres throughout the world. It tends to utilize both the strong and controlled legwork of ballet and modern dance’s stress on the torso, and also employs contact-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristic of modern dance. Unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed, and direction are often used, as well.

Benefits of Contemporary Dance:

  • Stronger bones and reduced risk of osteoporosis
  • Better coordination, agility and flexibility
  • Improved balance and spatial awareness
  • Increased physical confidence
  • Improved mental functioning
  • Improved general and psychological well being
  • Greater self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Better social skills
