Modern Jazz


Jazz Dance is a performance dance technique and style that first emerged in the United States in the early 20th century. Unlike Classical Ballet, there are no limitations of use of body and expression in Jazz Dance. The dancers you see in musical productions, Broadway shows, music videos and such like are usually performing in the Modern Jazz style.


In our Modern Jazz classes we use modern music that the children know and love. Every pupil is encouraged to develop their own unique style of performance, making these classes very popular in the school.

Ages 4-18


Spotlight School of Dance follow the BTDA Syllabus and offer graded examinations from preparatory to grade 8.  From the age of 4 children are offered the opportunity to take their Silver and Gold Rose awards with the BTDA. Children and teacher enter the exam room together giving the children confidence for future examinations. When the children have passed their Rose awards they move to graded examinations.
