Junior Jazz: is our third level jazz class. Students are taught the fundamental steps and "linking" steps of the modern jazz style. These steps are also incorporated into longer sequences that provide a basis for learning and remembering combinations. Exercises have a focus on technique, style and performance.

Students in Junior: have the opportunity to enter a NZAMD Medal Test and/or to perform in our annual End of Year Recital.

Progression: Junior Jazz progresses on to Rosette Jazz or Pre Grade Jazz.
