Age requirements 7 to 12
The Boys Jazz Funk class is a new offering for Charlotte Klein Dance Centers. Unlike our other classes, this dance program is for boys only. As an introductory dance class, Boys Jazz Funk will let your child creatively explore dance movement in a high-energy setting with non-stop action. We use popular, upbeat music to pump up the fun while training our male students in basic dance technique.
Many male roles in dance require great strength and stamina as well as large, powerful movements like jumps and leaping turns. This class will reinforce the technique behind such moves, combining basic jazz dance technique with a variety of other styles to build body strength, muscle tone, balance and coordination. Boys Jazz Funk will also enhance the dancer’s spatial awareness and cooperation, as male dancers are often partnered with and support the moves of female and other male dancers.
Dance training helps improve coordination skills while building an awareness of the position of everyone else on the floor, and how this influences individual movement. This class is a great opportunity for dancers to refine these skills, even if they are not interested in pursuing dance training. Dance is a great way to cross train and improve your overall athletic ability, which can be translated to improved skills on the field, in the court or on the rink. There are even professional sports teams that regularly incorporate dance training into their regimen. The balance and coordination needed for basketball, or the quick foot work of football, can be enhanced with taking a dance class.
