Programme Synopsis Jazz do it! is a Dance Enrichment programme designed to spark curiosity and build students’ appreciation of the art form, by making a cultural connection from our local arts scene to Jazz dance and its history. This program allows students to learn movements in an energetic and fun setting. Jazz is a form of dance that focuses on movement aesthetics and techniques. This form of dancing improves stamina and physicality as the emphasis is placed on extensions and mobility of the body. Students will be exposed to an array of jazz techniques and terminologies, which can serve as a basis for creative and free movement. Different music styles will be used for jazz, exposing them to the different jazz styles and developing their musicality. This provides the opportunity for students to feel the music and work on emotional and energetic expression. Music tempos range from slow ballads to fast mainstream jazz and learning with this musical variety challenges students to control their timing, energy and strength through the dance moves. Jazz Do It! develops students’ movement control, strength and spatial awareness from foundation to advanced levels. The movement exploration done with the fundamental move to music works on their creative thinking and boosts their confidence in movement creation. Choreographing to music requires active listening and improves mental focus, capacity and alertness. Students will be assessed on technical, creative, and theory aspects and this provides an opportunity for talent spotting as well. The outcome of the programme will be letting students acquire the knowledge of Jazz techniques in a fun and safe learning environment and engaging them in hands-on group work and creative exploration. They will also apply the choreography techniques they have learnt to conceptualise and create a piece of combination, using imagination and creativity to reference daily objects and events. Through the showcases performed to their peers, students will practise performance etiquette and build up their confidence and showmanship. All this culminates into teachable moments where students get a chance to relate performing arts to life lessons and values, motivating them to become continuous learners. Students should finish this programme as confident individuals who have had a positive group work experience, with a curious and appreciative attitude towards the arts.
