WHAT WE TEACH
We provide a range of classes for students aged 7 and above, offering 1 to 12 classes per week. These classes include Stretching and Acrobatics, Turns & Jumps, as well as the exploration of traditional and non-traditional dance techniques and combinations.
Our primary dance styles focus on Jazz and Contemporary. These stunning styles encompass a wide array of directions and disciplines, allowing students to explore various creative possibilities and foster their growth.
An energetic style of dance using various contemporary music genres. Within Jazz, there are different substyles, such as modern jazz, Broadway jazz, street jazz, and others. Jazz dance is always characterized by dynamic movements and expression. Sharpness, strength, control, flexibility, which our dancers will acquire in our Technique and Stretching classes, are essential here, and the Acrobatics class will help create unique visual effects and astonish the audience.
Contemporary dance is a modern style that allows dancers freedom of expression and experimentation. While Contemporary is the complete opposite of ballet, some ballet skills can be a valuable addition to enhance a dancer's performance artistry. To achieve this, we offer a tURNS & Jumps class, which is crucial for both, Contemporary and Jazz, as it helps dancers achieve grace, lightness, and control in executing complex moves and tricks.
Dance is magic that can awaken joy in the hearts of children and give wings to their imaginations.
Zabava Dance School takes part in regional competitions every year, participating in 2 to 6 events annually.
These competitions offer children the chance to demonstrate their achievements and skills, compare their abilities with other dancers, and receive valuable feedback from experienced judges. This encourages children to strive for self-improvement and refine their technical expertise.
Competitions also teach valuable life skills such as handling competition, fostering discipline, determination, and the drive to succeed. Furthermore, they serve as a source of inspiration and motivation for their ongoing creative growth.
While participation in competitions is not mandatory for enrollment at our school, if you wish to see your child shine on a grand stage, please inform us. We will provide you with the participation guidelines and suggest scheduling options for your child's competitive development.
