Youth Jam is a socially interactive dance program for kids 5-15 years of age.
The classes are designed to teach them coordination, posture, social ease, and rhythm while exploring the world of ballroom and latin dancing. Whether your child is interested in doing high level performances or if they just want to learn to dance in a fun environment – we’ve got a class that will fit your child’s needs.
Parents have chosen Youth Jam for their kids for a variety of reasons – here are the most popular ones:
> Your child loves dancing but not leotards: Kids can learn to dance in comfortable clothing in an even more comfortable and fun environment. If ballet isn’t “their thing”, maybe ballroom is?
> This is Timeless: Partner dancing is a skill that doesn’t go out of style. Getting them involved early makes an impact on their social future.
> Change the Routine: Want to give them an activity that is both athletic and artistic? Nothing changes up the routine like learning the Tango, Salsa, or Swing. Boredom sets in when things get predictable, so try something new and exciting this summer.
Here are some examples of the dances we teach:
> Foxtrot - Imagine a wedding reception and your son or daughter dancing and carrying on a conversation at the same time. Skillfully navigating around the room. Foxtrot is social dancing at its finest.
> Tango – The dance of drama! The Tango teaches dancers young and old to move with confidence and sophistication.
> Salsa – One of the most popular dances in the world right now, the salsa combines fast movement with exciting music.
> Samba – You’ve seen it on TV and now your kids get to try out the national dance of Brazil! Want your kids to develop coordination and get a great workout at the same time? This is the dance.
Before long, your kids will recognize the dances that they see on TV and may even teach you a step or two. What it all boils down to is that learning how to ballroom dance is different, and therefore, keeps them engaged. They’ll get a chance to learn in a fun environment and they don’t need to have any dance experience to participate.
Classes are enrolling now and are arranged based on age and goals. If you’d like more information on how to get your child involved, please contact a studio near you.
