Programme Synopsis “AIM – Teens’ Jazz” is a programme specially customized to meet the needs of teens. Converge adopts specific teaching techniques catered to engaging today’s teens to help them build interest in Jazz and Dance in general, all while picking up important skills and values associated with the 21st Century Competencies. The Converge AIM series strives to develop Appreciation, Impart values and skills, and Motivate teens. APPRECIATION – To develop passion for the genre and dance in general, we believe that it is important to guide students in understanding the history of the specific dance genre. With understanding and awareness that goes beyond just its physical form, students enjoy a more holistic appreciation for the art form. IMPART – At Converge, we believe in teaching through dance as much as we believe in teaching dance. At such a moldable age, lessons are specifically crafted to build their dance expertise and technical skills, all while helping students understand and practise key competencies and values in the ways they approach lessons and life. MOTIVATE – We engage our teens with age-appropriate teaching techniques and language, understanding that their needs and preferences can be significantly different from younger students and adults. We adopt team-building activities and techniques in our pedagogy to get teens moving, and to help them find purpose, meaning and motivation in and through dance. Students will pick up Jazz techniques, including Alignment, Port de Bras, Plies, Tendus, Footwork, Turns and Leaps. These will be incorporated into a choreographed sequence that can be showcased at the end of the programme. Learning Objectives APPRECIATE - Appreciate Jazz Dance history, its adoption in today’s dance industry, both locally and overseas, and corresponding connections with other parts of the world - Spark curiosity in Jazz dance, its history and applications - Understanding and acknowledging Jazz dance history, and the positive values imbedded within the genre ACQUIRE - Acquiring knowledge, understanding and ability to execute Jazz Dance techniques and choreography - Learning key terminologies and vocabularies associated with and/or adopted in Jazz Dance - Engage in hands-on practical application of above, including through technique training, choreography, showcase preparation.
